Categories: Sacred & Religious Sites, Churches, Tourist Spots
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.

This is 5 mins walk from the main square and worth the effort, to see this amazing tiled floor. The elephant is ugly, not sure what inspired that depiction.
Mai visto un pavimento più bello e così ben conservato . Assolutamente tra le cose più belle viste tra Capri ed anacapri. Da non perdere!!!!Ever seen a floor more beautiful and so well preserved. Absolutely one of the best views between Capri and anacapri. Not to be missed!show original
Superbe petite Eglise que l'on doit visiter sur des passages faits pour ne pas toucher à la mosaïque qui recouvre son sol. Superbe - Etonnante - Les mosaïques sont à couper le souffle - Ne pas hésiter... read more »Superb little church that one must visit made passages to not touch the mosaic that covers the ground. Stunning - Amazing - the mosaics are breathtaking - don't hesitate to complete the tour by climbing the stairs that lead to the organ to have a global vision of the magnificent mosaic and the whole Church - the entry cost 1 or 2 euros so don't hesitate to enter. It would be a shame to Miss!show original
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.
