Wether you enter Positano from the top road or come by boat, you can't miss the church and it's dome, inside is typical with icons, paintings and an ornate altar, if you are here you should at least have a look, in my opinion it is not as grand as the Cathedral in Sorrento.

This church is in a great location, sitting in a piazza close to Spiagga Grande. If you are a lite sleeper like myself, the toll of the bells will sometimes wake you.

the only architectural sight to see in positano. pleasant enough but not particularly memorable. but of course, you're not in positano to see the architecture.

We did a solo sito bus ride from sorrento to amalfi and stopped in postitano on the way back and did the steep walk down to the church and back up. The whole town is beautiful and you spend many hours here. Gorgeous views.

After taking the SITA bus to Positano to Sorrento, I walked down the hill to the church and it was one of the most beautiful views I've ever seen. The view would not be the same if it wasn't for the church. It took about 10-15 minutes to walk there from the bus stop. From there, you could just stare at the sea and wonder if you're really there or if it's just a dream. It's a very beautiful place worthy enough to return to.
