A beautiful church to visit. Take time out to visit this historic church so one can pray for all the locals and tourist to be safe.

Nice church to go into and explore in Positano. I wouldn't spend an overly large amount of time there as Positano has a lot to offer, but it was nice to see.

We stopped by this church while we were exploring Positano. It was a very simple and nice church. We made a point to visit all of the churches if we could go into while on our trip so we saw a lot. This one was nice and Positano was a beautiful town.

As we went up the stairs to go up for a stroll in Positano, we stopped by and had a look in this church. It was really hot outside and inside was cool and nice, perfect to have some time with yourself and say a little prayer.

Located in the seaside of Positano with its majolika tomb Santa Maria church shines like a jewel under the sunshine.

This beautiful church is in the heart of the town, close to the beach, so you can't miss it - and it's well worth a little time exploring for some beautiful features both inside and out. The church has a rich history and is lovingly cared for - it's also beautfully airy and bright inside - a welcome break from... More

Presently undergoing a major restoration on the outside, and inside the main altar (the main altar was closed off). What I really liked was the fantastic Nativity scene on the left as you walk in (after walking the Nativity street in Napoli this Nativity scene was perfect). Very beautiful inside and the piazza was the perfect place to enjoy the... More

Beautiful little church very close to beach and several restaurants. We had a family wedding there. The staff were most helpful. The location was excellent. Beware of "red tape" if you are from UK

The Church dome blends so organically with fantastic view of gorgeous Positano. Beautiful place to visit and reflect. Short stop but very worthwhile.
