Not so impressive
Sep 2020
I didn't think it was such an impressive church. But you will pass by it, so have a look. The dome is quite nice.

The beautiful dome is visible from all places in Positano. It is worth having a look inside, the church it typically Italian.

Sleepy fishing village
Mar 2020
We have wanted to visit Positano ever since we saw it on Gino’s cooking programme. We were not disappointed even though it was March when we visited. Probably a better time to visit as the weather is still warm and sunny but as it is out of season we got to see it at its best. Many of the shops and cafes are closed out of season and lots of building work taking place whilst it is out of season. This church is set not far from the sea amidst this lovely fishing village, the interior is just as nice. We were told that in the height of summer you cannot move for tourists so counted ourselves lucky for visiting now

Church on the beach of Positano. Go inside and have a look.
Jun 2019
Make your way down from where cars/buses are parked up. We went on Tempio Travel Amalfi coast tour and so the bus dropped us off and parked up and we had free time in positano and our tour guide advised us about the Church on the beach and to go inside and have a look if we had time but also to wander down and look at all the lovely shops and narrow walkways on this steep hilside. We did make our way right down and into the Church and have a look around at it. It doesnt look that impressive from the outside really but when you get inside as we have noticed with a lot of Churches the inside is where the wonder is. Worth a visit when in Positano.

Well that’s iconic Dome...
Sep 2019
You must have seen its dome in the foreground of Positano landscapes. The church’s colorful majolica tiled dome is one of the town’s iconic symbols, its pattern of yellow, green and blue tiles shining against the blue sky and the Mediterranean Sea. Famous for its fashion design and nearly vertical setting with colorful villas stacked one on top of another up the cliff side, the Church of Santa Maria Assunta is an important part of Positano’s cultural, religious and architectural landscape. The church is one of the town’s most prominent and photographed sights, as it is located right in the center of Positano just a few steps from the Marina Grande beach.

Walking along the beach or through the narrow staircases lined with boutiques, the Church of Santa Maria Assunta is always at the center of attention. Most of the staircases leading up from the Marina Grande Beach pass behind or through the small piazza in front of the church. From there you can enjoy the view of the façade of the church and the 18th-century bell tower.

A lovely church with beach views
Sep 2019
This is a lovely church in Positano with a tiled domed. The exterior of the church is simple except for the fabulous tiled-dome that is easliy viewed from the beach below, There is aseparate bell tower. The interior is very impressive, and there are lovely views of the beach area from the side chapal. We enjoyed our short visit inside.

The Chiesa di Santa Maria Assunta would surely be an interesting spot ro see, but only if you come by ship or with the regular bus. As individual traveler coming with a car you have no chance to park your car anywhere. Several kilometers along the street to and from Positano autos are parked front to tail and also in the center of Positano autos are parked everywhere so that we couldn't find a parking lot. Most unfortunately. My advice: avoid Positano and several other spots along the Amalfi coast; there are several other interesting spots to see anywhere.
