In the main square of the town, near Spiaggia Grande (Positano’s main beach), is the famous Church of Santa Maria dell’Assunta. The building owes its origin to the presence of a Byzantine icon depicting the Black Madonna with child in her lap whilst its fame is mostly due to the dome covered with majolica tiles.
Not to be missed is also Chiesa del Rosario and what remains of an ancient monastery that surrounded the area of what is now Piazza dei Mulini. Here you can admire some headstones and a roman sarcophagus with its representation of Bacco.
Worthy of note is also the Medieval Crypt and the Roman Villa of the 1st century BCwhose remains were only recently discovered.
