Positano is an amazing small town on the cost. The combination of mountain rocky landscape, beautiful colourful buildings and sea coast is stunning. The church is on the beach.

I wasn't prepared for how impressive this Villa/Crypt was. Newly opened in July 2018, I thought 15 euro entrance was high until I changed my mind at the end of the tour. It was worth it for me as it feels like a VIP Tour...More

This beautiful church will make you pause as you travel the narrow streets past the shops to the beach. It sits among cliff side shops and is quite grand.

Nice church in the crowded tourist town of Positano. Admired the beautiful dome from the outside only as it was Sunday and we could go inside.

This is a must see when you visit. Quite some building. When you go in take time to sit down first to fully take it all in. The setting will take your breath away.

If you're visiting positano you'll most likley reach this place whether you've planned it or not. I found it worth taking a pick inside, mostly to see the rare Black Maddona painting. Especially once you learn the legend about how it got to the village...More
