Positano is an amazing small town on the cost. The combination of mountain rocky landscape, beautiful colourful buildings and sea coast is stunning. The church is on the beach.

Nice church in the crowded tourist town of Positano. Admired the beautiful dome from the outside only as it was Sunday and we could go inside.

This is a must see when you visit. Quite some building. When you go in take time to sit down first to fully take it all in. The setting will take your breath away.

If you're visiting positano you'll most likley reach this place whether you've planned it or not. I found it worth taking a pick inside, mostly to see the rare Black Maddona painting. Especially once you learn the legend about how it got to the village...More
