Very nice church inside and a beautiful dome outside made with colorful traditional ceramic tiles. We were also lucky to watch for a couple of minutes a very beautiful British wedding which was an a unexpected surprise for us.

We happened by just as a small wedding was taking place, a very nice church with many frescoes, alcoves. For the wedding we were treated to Ave Maria by an Italian Tenor. Absolutely wonderful.

You can't miss walking by this church whilst making your way to the beach from Positano's main roads. It's a lovely church with an incredibly high ceiling. My mum, who is religious, thought it was lovely but could do with a touch up. There was...More
