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.

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.
