Worth seeing. It's not a dome but has some old and typical features and history. Some typical paintings.

This is a great place to stop for a picnic while hiking the Path of the God's. Very quaint and the views are stunning. Take a few minutes to walk through the convento di san domenico while you are there.

We climbed the 1000 steps from Praiano and the views all the way up are breath-taking. Ideal if you want to join up with the Path of the gods walks. They hold concerts outside which must be good but none while we were there.

We walked the Santiero Degli Dei from Praiano to Nocelle and passed this deserted convent on the way. It's a good hike from the town but once there, the views are stunning. The 14th century frescoes and the abandoned cells are worth the hike alone,...More

Beautiful spot, great views, despite the need to climb 1000 steps to get there. Made us appreciate our pasta at dinner. There is a man with a dog who sells drinks at the top if you're desperate.

Hiking is one of the features of our vacation without it we are not vacationing , going up to this place with its serenity and the view is really beautiful not only mentioning the simplicity of the convent which is nice and great feeling.
