Positano is a town and comune on the Amalfi Coast (Naples metropolitan area), in Campania, Italy, mainly in an enclave in the hills leading down to the coast. It was a relatively poor fishing village during the first half of the twentieth century. It began to attract large numbers of tourists in the 1950s, especially after John Steinbeck published his essay about the town in Harper’s Bazaar in May, 1953: “Positano bites deep”, Steinbeck wrote. “It is a dream place that isn’t quite real when you are there and becomes beckoningly real after you have gone.”

The church of Santa Maria Assunta features a dome made of majolica tiles as well as a thirteenth-century Byzantine icon of a black Madonna.[According to local legend, the icon had been stolen from Byzantium and was being transported by pirates across the Mediterranean. A storm had blown up in the waters opposite the town and the frightened sailors heard a voice on board saying “Posa, posa!” (“Put down! Put down!”). The icon was unloaded and carried to the fishing village and the storm abated. Wikipedia
