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.

  • Certainly by seeing this beautiful church, very particular. It is worth getting in from within, because it has a ceramic floor spectacular, one of a kind. Represents the garden of Eden and you can admire walking all around on a wooden platforms that so they avoid being walked on. Climbing a narrow metal spiral staircase, you get upstairs, where you placed the organ. From here you can enjoy the work of a 360° in all its glory: a true wonder! Everything is represented on the pastel tones and also the vault is off white. Elegant, austere, but restful. A gem.

  • Located right next to our favorite Island bed and breakfast, this Church offers every time a vortex of emotions for the eyes and soul. At every glance new details stand out and make you learn a new gradient and stroke that the artist wanted to express. You should at least spend a few hours enjoying this great work of art. Highly recommended to visit, even the price of admission is great spot.

  • Great visit to a church held by a fraternity whose President is a courteous gentleman who gave us some valuable explanations on the painting representing it.

  • 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!
