Great little place to go see in Ischia. You can enter the church for free and the surrounding is really cool. Another good free-bee that you shouldn't miss.

Unexpected beautiful interior. This dear little church is a must. So simple and captivating, light and lustrous decoration. I just sat there in peace. Beautiful experience.

We rented a scooter for the day and drove around Ischia. This was one of our stops and it was well worth the view. Just a short walk from Forio center with a bunch of cute little cafes on the way. Highly recommended pit stop!

Another stop-off on our taxi tour, it commands superb views along the coast. Dating, if I remember correctly from 1302, it is exquisitely preserved and contains a special corner devoted to the visit of Pope John Paul II. Outside the entrance are tiles or paintings dedicated to Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Well worth a visit.

Great photo opportunities with the church, the island and the sea. In 2002, Pope John Paul spoke here. The sea was filled with boats as people listened to him speak.

An exceptional place on a seaside promontory. The view of the sunset is spectacular from behind the church. We stayed at a hotel close by and the view of the church from the hotel was fantastic. We gate crashed a wedding one day ! And on another evening we attended a pleasant free concert on the forecourt. The church is... More

I stayed in Ischia for seven days, in a beautiful holyday, and by twice I spent a magic moments to admire and take some pictures with Chiesa del Soccorso. I believe that Chiesa del Soccorso is most beautiful, famous and "shooting" objective from the island... You can admire its beautiful proportions and simple facades, interiors...and the terrace from which you... More
