Fodor's Review

The 14th-century Santa Maria della Neve, better known as the Santuario del Soccorso, is the island's most picturesque church. Down at the harbor, the whitewashed church makes makes a good spot for a sunset stroll. Check out the wooden crucifix in the chapel on the left; it was washed up on the shore below the church in the 15th century. Restored in 2013, this is the oldest statue on the island. For an overview of the town go to the Torrione, one of 12 towers built under Aragonese rule in the 15th century to protect Forio's inhabitants from the ever-present threat of pirate raids.
