A beautiful place to reflect away from the heat and noise of the square. Take your time to look inside this small but fascinating church.

We strolled around Anacapri on a (rare) rainy day and came across Chiesa San Michele. It is a very nice church with wonderful decorations and floor mosaics (see photos).

Visited this lovely church yesterday morning . It cost 2 Euro entrance fee. The handpainted ceramic floor tiles are magnificent. Make sure you climb up the narrow; spiral staircase to the viewing gallery .

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

Built between 1698 and 1719, the original nucleus consists of the former church of S. Nicola and a small cloister. The floor, designed by Solimene, portrays scenes of Paradise on Earth and was executed in majolica tiles by Leornardo Chiaiese, a "master tilemaker" from Naples....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
