Madonna e Cristo Bambino sopra Chiesa Monumentale di San Michele Arcangelo, Anacapri
"Madonna and Christ Child above Monumental Church of San Michele Arcangelo, Anacapri"...
On the third morning in Sorrento, I departed on a high speed Ferry to the island of Capri. Although promoting high-speed, it still took over an hour to arrive at the very crowded Island. Capri is located off the coast of Naples and there must be a new Ferry full of tourists arriving every 20 minutes throughout the day. Famous for its Blue Grotto, which I did not venture to this trip, Capri is a picturesque Mediterranean retreat with high cliffs and ancient Roman villas. The highlight of my visit was the small and very crowded bus ride along the cliffs edge to Anacapri. I was standing closest to the door on the right side of the bus during the assent up the mountainside. All I could see was the rocky shore below and with every leaning left turn, prayed desperately I would make it to the top. Anacapri is a historic mountaintop town with commanding views of Capri and the sea below. This 4 image panorama was taken from the tiny balcony above the diminutive Church of St Michael the Archangel in Anacapri, located on Piazza San Nicola. The church was built in 1719, with an octagonal shape and of Baroque style. The church received a "monument" designation due to its notable majolica floor mosaic of creation with Adam and Eve. One must traverse the sacred tile floor on benches around the edges to protect the imagery. This image is high above the Altar at the very top of the small church. I climbed a very creaky and tiny spiral staircase to capture this beautiful image of the Madonna and Christ child.
