Chiesa San Michele, Anacapri

4.7
#2 of 12 in Historic Sites in Island of Capri
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.

  • After a report on TV about this church, we decided to visit it! A small Baroque jewel full Anacapri! The floor paint by hand is gorgeous! A tour of duty!

  • 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!
  • Beautiful church in the Piazza San Nicola in Anacapri, with very nice Holy pictures, is very well preserved, with some tiles with striking images on the ground, typical of the area, animals and many lemons. Please visit walking through a wood around Passarella. Is allowed to climb to the top floor and can be seen from atop the entire floor
