A wonderful church with amazing frescoes and art which is well preserved considering it's age. The colours on the outside are amazing as well. A must see in the square of Positano.

Chiesa di Santa Maria Assunta e Cripta Medievale is a beautiful building. It can be seen from afar, and that dome is absolutely magnificent. The church is worth a visit if you are in this town.

Very nice church inside and a beautiful dome outside made with colorful traditional ceramic tiles. We were also lucky to watch for a couple of minutes a very beautiful British wedding which was an a unexpected surprise for us.
