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.

  • Two towns in the island of Capri ((1) (2) Capri Anacapri) there. We tour Hotel is San Michele in Anacapri district. Was a series of narrow streets and sharp from the port to Anacapri and the views spectacular. Hotel Anacapri with a tour with people shopping for hanging out. This church was in a very peaceful and beautiful scenery. Please see the photo. This is a very cute, white Church. Did not come true because it was unfortunately limited time buy after admission. It is "not to regret". If you look at a schedule of yourself write later said "walking is the Chiesa di San Michele". Lack of preparation, I did.

  • The Church is located in Anacapri, in a square. The ticket price is 2 euros, which bid for the maintenance of this artwork. You pass on a catwalk that runs round the side of the Church, so as not to spoil the wonderful floor made with tiles and composing a beautiful design, huge. Ancient altars and made of wood, beautiful paintings and an organ big and gorgeous. A church that you'd do seeing it from the outside. This is one of the Italian art treasures that many don't know ... like me! YOUR EYES ARE FULL OF BEAUTY ... OF ART!

  • You must go - there is so much to look at in this chapel. The art and detail are amazing, and of course the floor is stunning.

  • 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!
