The Church of Santa Maria Assunta
This church is the centerpiece of town, with roots that date back to the 10th century. It was once the Romanesque-style abbey of the Benedictine monastery and faces Piazza dei Mulini. You’ll see its Moorish dome with brightly glazed tiles from the outside, but the most notable feature is inside, the Virgin Madonna that’s been celebrated here for centuries as part of a popular legend that tells the story of how Positano was named. It also includes an altar with 12th-century Byzantine treasures.
