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.

  • Grecobizzantina architecture, built on a promontory overlooking the sea called punta del soccorso, dedicated to fishermen in distress at sea, simple inside, majestic landscape as a whole, from its Esplanade and the walkway to the Sea you can enjoy a wonderful sunset pampered by the lapping of the sea

  • In Forio in Ischia the Church of Soccorso is in the forward position on the sea. from which we see wonderful sunsets. When the Sun dips into the sea there are people who swear to see "the Green Ray" I never saw him while noting carefully (maybe not a started). But the feature of the Church is that exists on the main altar a Madonna, (usually all the statues, images of Madonnas worldwide are with folded hands, l, sweet, mild, benevolent). This Madonna wields a long stick with your right hand, the angry eye, the expression arrabiata, Club Devil who is placed at his feet. exists on the sides in a vision, of which I recommend reading, explaining the reason for so much fury. .
