Lots of churches in Italy, all beautiful in their own way. Sometimes when you are visiting the church is the coolest place to go.

We stopped here with our tour group to see Positano, liked the beach and some shops but not much else. Had some time so went in the Cathedral to view, it was nice but nothing special so we just walked around looked at the scenery. Although for us this was our highlight in Positano.

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
