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.

  • The location of this church is definitely impressive. It is overlooking the sea, which surrounds it on three sides, and has a rooftop terrace with stone seats. You pass a lot of time to enjoy the view from this promontory. Striking, and perhaps even curious, the statue of the Virgin Mary placed on the main altar: wield a stick, has the devil crushed under a foot and a little boy seeks refuge among his robe. Obviously there is a legend. Tells of a woman who asked grace that his son was released from the devil. Desire apparently granted. Come to this place, definitely worth it. And don't forget your camera as I did!
