Ischia Hidden Corners
Ischia Hidden Corners are many. Some even say that Ischia itself is a hidden island and it is unknown by the most. Certainly not in Italy but possibly for people living abroad. In fact, the prestigious National Geographic magazine recently published an article on Ischia titled The Incredible Italian Island You’ve Never Heard Of. Click HERE to view the article.
The magazine speaks about Sant’Angelo a beautiful and hidden village in Ischia. Beautiful churches is also something that Ischia stands out for. One we would like to highlight here is the Navigator Church (Chiesa del Soccorso) in Forio d’Ischia. This church is actually quite famous. The whitewash walls and its shape may remind the architecture of Greek islands.
The church position is quite spectacular overlooking the sea and the infinity. What is probably less known is what you can find inside and this is why we consider it as one of the Ischia hidden corners. Some beautiful tiles reminding Spanish azulejos of arabic tradition from 1700 can be admired in some area of the church. An antique wood cross probably from XVI century and found on the sea bottom is another little treasure that deserves some attention.
Navigator church is just a couple of miles away from our villa Torre dell’Aquila and we surely recommend you a visit if you are in Ischia.
