From the outside this church doesn't look much although interestingly it has a whale bone by the entrance.

TIP There is a crypt downstairs which is worth a visit.

This has to be a must for all visitors to Sorrento. It is not a large church but it is spectacular. The inlaid marble of the interior is spectacular and the undercroft of the church is filled with votive offerings and pictures of near shipwrecks avoided by the intervention of St Anthony Abate, the patron saint of Sorrento.

It is located in the Piazza Sant ' Antonino with some little green yard before the building of the church and the... More

This is a lovely church, well worth the visit. Make sure you go downstairs! There are cases with votive medallions, petitioning prayers for specific problems or body parts. It is heartbreaking and fascinating. St. Anthony is also the patron saint of sailors; there are pictures of the ships that people asked his blessings for.

This we thought was the best of all the churches. Very decorative. Not open all the time, but if you catch it, well worth the visit.

Many churches are within Sorrento. This is a classic Basilica that must be viewed to appreciate. It is not just a walk in and out, the art work is glorious, time for quiet meditation for all. A very moving experience to those who visit it.
