Chiesa San Michele, Anacapri

4.7
#2 of 8 in Historic Sites in Island of Capri
Religious Site Church
Unassuming and unique, Chiesa San Michele represents a beautiful 17th-century church with whitewashed walls and yellow accents. Crystal chandeliers hang from the arched ceilings around the elegant high altar of marble. Enter to see the impressive collection of paintings that hang from the walls, including works by 18th-century Neapolitan artists such as Giacomo Del Po, Francesco Solimena, and Nicola Malinconico. Even more famous is the floor here, executed in maiolica tiles by Leonardo Chiaiese and dating from 1761. Its vivid colors depict the story of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. To get a good view, climb up to the choir loft to really take in the masterpiece.

  • Church Museum at present not open to the public in all areas. Very exciting Vietri majolica flooring with sacred images and altars dedicated to Saints. Even the view from the top floor is very charming

  • Fantastic decorated church and intricate floor. Use the boards to walk around the edge and don't use flash to take photos.
  • This small church has a tiled floor that depicts the garden of Eden. This type of tile work is very typical of the region. You walk around the perimeter and can go up into the balcony for the full effect. A very pleasant diversion in the town of Anacapri.
  • Capri is not only glamour!
  • Small church not far from the Centre of anacapri. beautiful tiled floor. Many years ago was entered inside, walking on the running boards. Today you can see only from the organ.

  • Capri, this is good. But you have to go to Anacapri (get you there by bus, not expensive). You need to visit this church. It is a must. Its tiles and earthenware are second to none.

Where to stay in Anacapri

A less expensive alternative to Capri's expensive resorts, Anacapri offers a peaceful setting for a long vacation away from the tourist crowds. The quieter and less explored of the two towns on the island, Anacapri boasts several small hotels with private balconies offering sweeping harbor views. Stay near the compact town center to explore its narrow streets lined with shops and cafes. Surrounded by olive groves and flower gardens, the town's B&Bs offer simple but comfortable rooms, only minutes away from Capri's famous nightlife.
