Positano Village, Italy

From series “Small Flamboyant Towns Painted with Van Gogh Colors”
Several beautiful villages can be found in Italy, and the charming Positano is among them  The main attraction of this colorful town is the church of Santa Maria Assunta that stores the religious relic that is known to the whole world - the icon of the black Madonna. A lot of amazing stories and legends are associated with the icon. According to one of them, a few hundred years ago, pirates have stolen the relic. On their way, they were overtaken by a violent storm. Pirates heard the mysterious voice that commanded them to bring the icon to the nearest church. This is how the relic got to Positano. Many pilgrims come here especially to bow to the amazing icon.

However, a tiny town on the Amalfi coast, is famous not only for its religious sites. It is located on a rocky slope, so colorful houses are arranged in stages and form an incredibly beautiful landscape. In addition to colorful houses, the picturesque town features many olive and orange groves. Hikers are sure to enjoy vacations here.

There are hotels in some of the colorful buildings. Positano is popular among lovers who opt for a romantic getaway. Local restaurants, in which you can taste the most popular national delicacies and imported wines from different regions of the country, deserve the high praise. Fans of beach holidays won’t be disappointed too. They will have an opportunity to swim and sunbathe at the picturesque sandy beaches. Next - Qaqortoq Village
