Despite its small size, Positano has several churches. This is the main church. It is not an architectural gem but it is well-maintained with marble mosaic surfaces throughout. It is a great place to go to Sunday mass to rub elbows with locals.

Beautiful church in Positano on the Amalfi coast. Certainly worth a visit when in Positano. The church sits above the coast line and has a good few steps up to it but worth the effort to see this gem.

A beautiful church in the centre of Positano. The usual majolica-tiled dome, lovely golden mosaic altar piece and a fascinating side-chapel dedicated to St Stephen, the first Christian martyr.

This dome of this church is covered with multi-colored ceramic tiles and is a symbol of Positano. You will pass by this church each time you go up and down from the main beach. We were lucky enough to see a bridal party heading through...More

The Church itself is not very ornate and you will not expect at awe when you are inside but it blends so well in what Positano is that it is really a great element of the welcoming feeling you have when you are in Positano

Unfortunately, the church was closed during our visit, so we could only see it from outside. it is very nice, especially its colourful majolica tiled dome.
