Fodor's Review

Along the path to the Villa Cimbrone lies this 13th-century monastery. The majolica flooring is one of its special elements, along with the matronaeum, or women's gallery, the only one left on the Amalfi Coast. Although only open to the public for the early-morning Sunday service, the wheel used to deliver food (and at one time unwanted children) to the nuns is just inside the entrance and can be seen anytime.
