Are you Praiano so do a visit to the church. The church is not big but very beautiful inside. You pass it if you are going down to the beach o Praiano

Felt incredibly peaceful inside. The Church is stunning and is the heart of the town. Loved that the kids play outside it.

My friend and I went to Mass here. Very Lovely and quaint. We attended on the Celebration of their Patron Saint Gennaro. The plaza was being set up with market shops and a band. Lovely Steeples!
