The façade doesn't do the interior justice. Beautiful frescos and the lower level has offerings of silver pieces mounted in cases as well as the tomb of Sant' Antonino. All of the stories "legends" are intriguing as they entertaining-we liked the whale and boy miracle. Amazing place to visit.

While the church is pleasant (not that there is any shortage of attractive churches in Italy) it is worth visiting for the Crypt alone and specifically the offerings - being pieces of silver shaped in the form of human body parts - from people (or their families) cured or seeking a cure, by prayer, for an illness of the 'illustrated'...

After reading Honeywife_7's review of June this year I was determined to visit this church. In fact I visited it three times during our week's stay and never tired of it. Apart from the beautiful apse and the lovely nave don't miss the crypt and the scores and scores of votives thanking the saint for his intercessions, some with very... More

We went into most every church we passed. This one was beautiful as are all of them. This one seems to specialize in weddings in the attached garden. During our ten days in town I think we saw 4-5 weddings taking place here.

English Mass on Saturday evening for those who don't speak Italian and find it hard to follow what's going on. Small side chapel that's popular for weddings - often one taking place in early evening

We visited this church last week, like all the churches in Sorrento it is beautiful yet serene. There is a wonderful story/legend about St Antonino which you should read before you visit the church. You will see several statues of St Antonino in and around Sorrento, make sure you look at his left foot!

not as ornate as San Francesco but well worth a visit...the interior is more baroque marble than renaissance fresco. the nave is not too wide for a basilica and the sanctuary and chancel are as they should be...beautiful and airy and bright... underneath is a wonderful crypt dedicated to the patron - Sant' Antonino with some relics and many votive...

We enjoyed the crypt with the silver body parts - giving thanks for recovery. Not at all unlike the votives thrown into springs etc by the Romans. Some things just don't change.
