Definitely worth a visit. There are city maps in Anacapri, so you should be able to find this ( a little bit) out of the way church. The floor is amazing, and you walk around it on a wooden walkway, so that you can see it from all angles. Additionally you can go upstairs and view it in its entirety. This visit will take about half an hour, depending on lines to get in

Little church a bit secluded by the main street of anacapri, but is decorated With a magnificent 18th tiled floor whit a wooden passanway onto the border you can stroll on.
It is featured by adam and eve thrown out from the paradise, you pay a fee entrance of 2€, but really worth it.
You can also ascend on the first floor for a comprehensive sight.
A very surprise.

A unique church just off main pedestrian street in Anacapri, most notable for the mural of Adam and Eve being cast out of Eden. Be sure to climb narrow spiral staircase to balcony which offers best views of floor/mural. Takes but a few minutes and definitely worth it.

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

This Church is only a 10 minute walk (at most) from the main piazza and definitely worth it. Entrance is cheap compared to that places and although it is relatively small and quick to walk around the unique floor is amazing to see both close up as you walk around it and then from the balcony above. Staff were also very friendly.
