Chiesa del Soccorso, Forio

4.4
#3 of 9 in Historic Sites in Isola d'Ischia
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.

  • Picturesque small church on the coast head. Beautiful outside and outside with its intimate atmosphere.
  • Stop to see the sunset, even the church isn't bad despite being small and bare, but has its own charm. On a negative note the surrounding area should be cleaner.
