It is a nice peacfull inner garden next to the church and lift from Porta. Don't expect anything breathtaking. In the upper flors there was a paid photo exebition, but the entrance to the first level is free.

Charming and peaceful church! Our private tour guide's friend's wedding was held at this beautiful church. Definitely worth it to pay attention to its details when you are in downtown Sorrento.

My partner and I got married at the Cloisters on the 4th July 2018. The cloisters was a stunning, beautiful venue which being so close to the seafront offers wonderful photo opportunities.

Open everyday but a popular venue for weddings. You can still get in but viewing is limited. We went back a few times before finding it empty. A small space but beautiful cloister and so calm and peaceful. Good for photography too.

Beautiful, quiet, peaceful. Discovered on the way to find the lift to the Marina Piccolo. A haven away from the busy streets of Sorrento. Worth a visit.

We couldn't believe how pretty this cloister is. A wonderful way to cool down out of the sunshine and a very quiet and contemplative place. Upstairs there was a phot gallery with a wonderful swing that is worth the price of admission alone.
