This church is near the beach. It is pretty but not as elaborate as other Italian churches. But it is focused on Mary, what ever happened to worshiping Jesus?

This beautiful church has a very pretty tiled blue,yellow and green dome which is the landmark of Positano. Inside there is a famous icon of the black Madonna and Child, which is worth seeing.

Despite its small size, Positano has several churches. This is the main church. It is not an architectural gem but it is well-maintained with marble mosaic surfaces throughout. It is a great place to go to Sunday mass to rub elbows with locals.

Beautiful church in Positano on the Amalfi coast. Certainly worth a visit when in Positano. The church sits above the coast line and has a good few steps up to it but worth the effort to see this gem.

A beautiful church in the centre of Positano. The usual majolica-tiled dome, lovely golden mosaic altar piece and a fascinating side-chapel dedicated to St Stephen, the first Christian martyr.

This dome of this church is covered with multi-colored ceramic tiles and is a symbol of Positano. You will pass by this church each time you go up and down from the main beach. We were lucky enough to see a bridal party heading through...More
