Lovely domed church

As you walk down the winding road the multi coloured tiled dome of the church stands out from its surroundings . Nice square in front too

The Dome can be admired from all around the town but going into the church is just beautiful and everyone gathers on the square with a Gelato and hangs out in this very special place. Even if you are not Catholic you will enjoy the sweet beauty of this place!

As churches go, this was a hidden gem tucked away in Positano. Even if you are not Catholic, attend the international Mass on Saturday. We experienced the Rosary being sung in Italian.

The church with its multicoloured tiled dome is in the centre of this visually stunning and dramatically located town on the Amalfi Coast. Great views can be had from both sides of the cliffs down into the town then viewed at close quarters. The square outside and the church itself can get incredibly busy especially with tour groups so if... More

This church is stunningly beautiful and very busy with weddings sometimes two each day. Well worth a visit as the dome can be viewed from underneath and an ancient Roman villa is being excavated below this edifice too (May 2016).

This is a not to be missed church that is literally steps away from the beachfront.it is very quiet and on a very sunny walk to the beach, afforded a sanctuary both corporeal as well as spiritual. The roof is visible from every part of Positano and serves as a bearing too.

If you're staying in Positano, this church is at the bottom of the hill, almost on the beach. You may as well ignore the potteries and commercial enterprises as you descend the hill. This is the main attraction. The church itself is one of the tastefully decorated I've ever seen. It's far less gaudy than many of the medieval churches... More

This church is in the heart of the town and near the beach. It is also on one of the main routes passing by shops and restaurants that leads to the beach area. It is simple but beautiful inside and has quite a history. The dome is beautiful (we looked down on it from out balcony). We were there just... More

Quaint church which offers a nice respite from the hustle and bustle of touristy Positano. Although famous for the Black Madonna above the alter, do not expect the usual opulence of Italian churches found in larger cities.
