I visited my share of churches on this trip, and being non-religious, this was something I will not forget. The floor is a full mosaic of the garden of Adam and Eve. Go up the spiral staircase to get a bird's eye view. Truly spectacular....More

This is very very different from most of the great churches of the world that people visit...cavernous, gothic and dark. This church is small, bright and the ceramic floor and decor are beautiful. Worth a visit.

This is a must see for Anacapri. Walk around the perimeter of the church’s interior to view the painted mosaic on the floor. But be certain to climb the spiral staircase to see the entire scene from above. It is awe-inspiring. Even though humanity was...More

Anacapri is spectacular in and of itself - and then we found this church. What could be new- I’d been in so many, many crushes as we tracked thru Italy. But this one is one that memories are made of. The majolica floor shows the...More

The church floor is a stunning view of Adam and Even in the garden with fascinating faces on the animals. To get the full effect climb the tiny spiral staircase to the gallery upstairs!

The church was built in XVIII century. The majolica floor (1761) depicts the expulsion of Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden and is one of the most important examples of the 18th century Neapolitan school. You can walk around the floor over wood...More
