The church has a beautiful view especially in the off season where there are no crowds. There is no admission fee. There are a couple of ways to access the church via stairs and it was very easy to find.

A peaceful pause in a hectic day. The church is old and beautiful in its simplisity. The location a short walk from the beach, on the edge of a cliff is breath taking.

This church is a must to see! Antique and authentic! It’s on a spot from where you see splendid view of Forio and Mediterranean Sea!
