The Positano Chiesa is renowned for its "black Madonna." Although referred to in history manuals as that, the locals appropriately now refer to it as the Byzantine Madonna. The tiny church and the town has legend and mythology behind it. In Homer’s Odyssey, Positano is...More

We recently got married here on September 30th! The church was beautiful and the father who married us was the best priest in the world! Our family loved the church also! Cannot wait to visit again in the future with our children hopefully.

My sister got married here last week, and the Church is just beautiful. I would highly recommend coming for Mass or even just a visit.

From an architectural standpoint, the only remarkable part of this church is its tiled dome, which is best viewed and photographed from the beach. The interior is fairly bland, but the main alter-piece is worth study.

We stumbled upon the crypt by mistake and that was the most worthwhile part if the visit as the guide was very informative and passionate. They are going to put some more of it on display in a few years time. We couldn't see much...More

The gold dome of this historic church on the beachfront is the first thing you see as you arrive by boat at this beautiful jewel in the crown of the Italian coastline. The Italian dedication to God in churches right through every town is stunning,...More

It is located very close to the beach/harbor. Definitely include a visit to this cathedral in your exploration of Positano. We made a bus ride from Sorrento to Amalfi and stopped in Postitano and we made the steep walk down to the church and back...More

My daughter was married in the Santa Maria Assunta in June 2014. The entire experience was every bride's dream. The church is gorgeous, the priest friendly, personable, and cares about the couple he is marrying. His marital counseling before the ceremony was thoughtful and insightful.
