What a surprise this small church was! Beautiful paintings in the chapels and unique tile floor depicting the expulsion from Eden and a number of animals. You can't walk on the floor but there is a convenient ramp wrapping the periphery of the sanctuary to be able to see everything. A lovely docent was happy to provide information (with limited English) once we expressed our wonder at the floor. Highly recommend stopping here.

An easy walk from the bus stop, this church provides an unusual artistic experience to the viewer. Generally one looks at the walls or ceiling of a church, but here it's the floor which is completely covered in ceramic tile. The tile shows the Garden of Eden with Adam and Eve, and dozens of animals. You walk along a narrow boardwalk to take in the details and then up to the choir loft to see a panoramic view. There is a very modest entrance fee. Cash only.

If you think about it, the whole idea is asinine. Instead of serving its purpose as a floor covering, the ceramic tiles were painted with art and now people have to walk on raised gangway around the tiles so as not to obscure the view or worse, destroy it. For the rare opportunity of viewing this piece of art, it is worth a visit. Don't forget to go upstairs for a bird's eye view as you won't see the whole picture at ground level; otherwise you will literally miss the forest for the trees.

We found this church down a side street and was a nice, unexpected surprise. I would make this on a list to visit in this town. Wonderful internal architecture and there was a docent on-hand to answer question in limited English (helps if you know at least some Italian). The floor is breathtaking and the organ is somewhat ornate.

The church is a bit away from the main alley, be careful not to miss the signs to it. There is another church with a similar facade, but this one is the one to be visited - with it very unusual majolica floor depicting “The expulsion of paradise”e. A little bijou!

When I came here I never expected to find such a beauty! This place is like anything else I had ever seen before. You visit the church but you mainly look at the marvellous floor completely cover in detail by outstanding hand painted ceramic tiles.
This is a must visit!

Cost: 1 euro (or was it 2?) A pleasant diversion from the pizzas and wine! As we worship at 12th century St Michael's, Flixton, Manchester, we had to visit 15th century St Michael's. Capri, Campania! Inside, the main thing to view is the floor - which comprises of majolica (is that spelt right?) tiles that are hundreds of years old and depict Creation (obviously from the Biblical perspective rather than the Stephen Hawkins viewpoint!). A view of Adam, Eve, Pomegranites, Wonderous beasts and a snake - not to mention St Michael. And there's a gallery affording an excellent view of this. If you want to visit somewhere that will take 2 hours of your time, then go elsewhere, if you want to view some amazing antique Christian Art - take a look.

Have you ever wondered how you would paint animals that you have never seen but have only read about! Here is a wonderful opportunity to see how hundreds of years ago Europeans imagined animals in Africa and the beasts of the bible!
The floor is still in magnificent condition and is really worth visiting. There are also a number of alters which are quite ornate and an upstairs balcony were you can get a better perspective of the craftsmanship.

What a wonderful church. Step away from the commercialism of the Island of Capri and visit here.
Its a token fee to enter. The floor is amazing, depicting the Garden of Eden. The alcoves around the floor are filled with separate altars with breathtaking panels.
There is a walkway around the floor so you dont step on the floor (signs everywhere)... but of course people do.. no respect. There is a viewing point from above but unfortunately this was accessed by a spiral metal staircase and my elderly mother couldnt manage it... some a postcard was purchased along with plenty of pictures from 'ground level'
Its definitely worth the visit

Wanted to see something artistic that has lasted through the ages. Definitely worth the €2 donation.
