Beautiful old church in the center of Praiano! Well worth a visit. There are several steps to the Church, but the beauty inside is worth the walk and the views from the courtyard are goregeous.

The church is located on the "north" side of Praiano. As you walk around this part of Praiano you can see it from many different angles. It is fun to photograph. My favorite part of the interior are the beautiful floor tiles.

This is a beautiful church sitting in a prime position in Praiano. The views are lovely and the locals love to gather in the square to socialise and the children play.

You have to be here to see locals going to church around 5:30 p.m. everyday, there is a small square outside where you can sit and watch locals play soccer, talk to them and even play with them or take pictures. It's great to be...More
