Charming church with a beautiful view of both the sea and the hills. Lovely any time of day, but especially at sunset. In 2002, Pope John Paul spoke here.

Great little place to go see in Ischia. You can enter the church for free and the surrounding is really cool. Another good free-bee that you shouldn't miss.
