This is such a lovely church much loved by the locals as it contains the relics of their patron saint. You must take time to go down to the crypt where there are so many gifts left by people who have had their prayers answered,a tiny silver leg ,for instance, from someone who had a bad leg cured.

For more than a century, the faithful of St Antonino have thanked this saint for specific miracles, by donating a silver part of the body where they received the miracle. There were dozens of legs, arms, and organs in display, along with letters thanking Saint Antonino. Even if you're not a catholic is an interesting church.

Basilica Pontificia di Sant'Antonino Abate Sorrento has an unassuming front next to a couple of restaurants and across from the Sant'Antonino statue in Piazza Sant'Antonino. Once inside the ornate decor and dedications to the Saint are beautiful. Downstairs is the true difference for this religious place of worship, Sant'Antonino watches over the fleet and his followers. The seafaring heritage of... More

If I remember correctly, I think this church was next to the cloisters? If so, it was beautiful inside and the place to get married for Italians. All churches in Sorrento were beautiful no matter how big or small they were. Churches in surrounding villages were well worth a visit too. We are not religiously-minded people but do love to...

As with all Italian Churches this one had beautiful frescos and a grandeur about it. We are not Catholic but it is peaceful in these churches and reminds us of how people worshipped before the Reformation carrying on the Christian faith through the centuries
