The Churches of Positano
The churches of Positano are truly sacred buildings and rich in art and architecture. For this reason, a tour of Positano and its places of worship, is a must.
Despite its small population, Positano has a discreet number of sacred buildings.
Of these, the most important is the Parish Church of Positano, but not to be forgotten or overshadowed are those such as The New Church (Chiesa Nuova), the Church of Saint Giovanni, The Church of Saint Matteo, the Church of Rosario, the Church of Saint Margaret, the Church of Saint Catherine and the Church of Saint Giacomo.
The New Church of Positano, which one will find at the top of the hill, was given its new name and a whole suburb. It was reconstructed in the 18th century over the Chapel of Saintly Sacrament. It aspires openly to the Baroque style and character and also has a magnificent majolica pavement by Ignazio Chiaiese; the presence of diverse archeological aspects and valuable paintings make a visit to this church most worthwhile.
Going down the valley, immediately after Via Pasitea, one finds the small Church of Saint Giovanni of Positano, which, unfortunately, is in a state of degradation, but nevertheless is still worth a visit.
Leaving Via Pasitea one can turn into Via Monte and there find another little church: the Church of Saint Matteo of Positano, which was significantly restored in 1878 and then again in 1897.
Walking along Via Pasitea again, one will arrive at the Church of Saint Rosario of Positano, which takes its name from the congregation to whom it was entrusted.
For those who want to visit the Church of Saint Margaret of Positano (even though it is of small dimensions, it is still evocative), a sense of adventure is a must, if you want to tackle the notorious flights of stairs that lead one to Fornillo Beach.
A little further along, one finds the Church of Saint Catherine (built near the Fornillo Grotto).
And finally, one cannot forget the Church of Saint Giacomo of Positano, which is also a church of small proportions, but is particularly old as it was founded around 1100.
