This simple modest church was built right on top of the sea and it is one of the best locations for sunset watching on the island. I would also recommend walking on the quay beneath the church, but only if the waves are not high, otherwise you'll get wet.

This little church is well worth a visit, even if it is for just 10 minutes of your visit. Lovely location a sweet little church. If it was worth the time for pope John Paul 2 to come then I think it was worth some of my time as well , in fact we came twice during our visit to the island .

Dramatic beautiful church and perfect place to see the sunset over the water, and then wander back to the bustle of Forio for a drinks and dinner. Hugely romantic.

The church has a stunning setting perched on a hilltop above Forio. It also has beautiful mosaics and five crosses outside.

Movie buffs may recognize this building which was one of the locations used in the Billy Wilder directed film, "Avanti," starring Jack Lemon. Given the bounty of over-the-top churches and cathedrals in Italy, the simplicity of Chiesa del Soccorso is very lovely, as is its tribute to those who ply the seas. It's worth a stop and a pause.
