Santa Maria dell'Isola

Santa Maria dell'Isola Review

From the belvedere at the bottom of the main square, Piazza Ercole, the church and Benedictine monastery of Santa Maria dell'Isola glisten on a rocky promontory above an aquamarine sea. The path out to the church is lined with fishermen's caves. Dating to medieval times, the church was remodeled in the Gothic style, then given another face-lift after an earthquake in 1905. At this writing, access to the promontory has been improved, but the site is temporarily closed until renovation of the church is completed. The interior has an 18th-century Nativity and fragments of medieval tombs.
