Chiesa del Soccorso, Forio
(4.4/5 based on 1,100+ reviews on the web)
On a small peninsula beside the Tyrrhenian Sea, Chiesa del Soccorso was built around 1350. Its whitewashed exterior is a study in simplicity and reverence. Inside, view the small collection of artwork and various religious artifacts. Outside, explore the rocky outcrop and enjoy ocean views once admired by the fishermen to whom the chapel is dedicated. Keep an eye out for the island of Ventotene, visible from the small square in front of the church on clear days.

  • At the end of a small rise in a narrow alley with all the momentum of our sputtering tricycle taxi it leads to a courtyard with a small church all white: an appearance! Testimonies of faith naïve, raw art... a lot of emotion. Belvedere open to the sea, we toured the Church before entering.

  • Very impressive this church dedicated to the Madonna del soccorso. Simple and linear in shape, is dedicated to the sailors, in particular fishermen in distress. Inside it preserves many models of boats in memory of shipwrecks without consequences of human lives.

  • Fishing town church.
  • Characteristic Church overlooking the sea where you can admire one of the most beautiful sunsets on the island.
