I love this place. It's like being able to breathe in fresh air in the middle of town. It's quiet and calm and very beautiful. Go to the roof exhibition space and you get a wonderful view over the bay. Brilliant!

A pretty church and a very peaceful cloister. A pleasant retreat from the mass touristas of Sorrento. Take 5.

We stayed at a hotel just a few steps away from this church. There was a constant stream of weddings and this was very pleasant to witness. Such a lovely event space.

Popped into here having been into the church next door too. These cloisters were very pretty and peaceful. Great place to simple ‘be’ for a short while.

Beautiful cloisters and if you are lucky you may find a pianist or violinist playing in the garden. Very peaceful and spiritual.

Highly recommend a visit to the cloisters they have art exhibition here and musically nights worth a visit but can hear from outside. This is also popular with people getting married

A short narrow and seemingly uninteresting alleyway to the left of the church leads you into a lovely small cloister area. It will only tempt you to linger for a few minutes, but it is a haven of calm and historic interest that is well...More

We found this church and quiet cloisters shortly after a wedding had taken place and a violinist was still playing in the cloisters whilst they had photos taken. Venue also houses art exhibitions. It is beautiful and tranquil and worth a step inside.
