Chiesa di San Michele della Croce

Moving away from the Piazzetta and along the road that reaches Villa Jovis, you can admire a small church, protected by a wall and by the flora of the garden, called the Church of San Michele. It takes its name from the proximity to a cave, always dedicated to the cult of San Michele Arcangelo, once used as a refuge during Saracen raids.

Immersed in one of the most romantic gardens in Capri, the building was built in the 12th century. The architectural structure immediately suggests a succession of eras of construction.

In fact, in 1806, during the English occupation, the church became a gunpowder depot, due to its proximity to a “fort” built in the hills.
