A Positano Church wedding in the vibrant kaleidoscope of Positano's colours

The great majolica mosaic dome of the Moorish Cathedral sits above the Marina Grande; this parish Church is a world away from everything else, where silence and contemplation reigns supreme.

Inside, baroque alters and a table dating back to the 12th Century. contains important works of art, outstanding among which is a Circumcision, a stupendous work by Fabrizio Santafede, from the end of the sixteenth century, and a delightful thirteenth-century Byzantine-style panel depicting the Virgin and Child. According to popular tradition, the origin of the town's name is linked to this very icon: looted by the Saracens, the precious panel was brought back to land following a storm, while from the shore was heard the prodigious cry "posa, posa" (put it here). Having given back the ill-gotten icon, the sea calmed down, so a church was built in honour of the Virgin on that spot and the town grew around it, that took the name of Positano. 

The bell tower is also very interesting with a medieval bas-relief portraying a sea monster, some fish and a fox, probably to underline the dual nature of the coastal inhabitants' souls, half countrymen and half seamen.

The Cathedral's interior is white and gold and full of light. A perfect backdrop to your photographer service!
