Chiesa San Michele, Anacapri

(4.6/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Very nice on the outside, with its White façade move. Inside is original because the floor is tiled, with a single scene that represents the garden of Eden. Worth a visit

  • Small clear "baroque" Church which houses a wonderful curiosity: the ground is a tiles in majolica XVIII s. representing Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden surrounded by a fabulous bestiary.

  • 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.
  • Thrilled by such beauty!
