The most beautiful church for your wedding in Italy is in Vico Equense

The day of the yes is an unforgettable date. From the dress to the food, to the location everything must be perfect. 

For those who opt for the religious ceremony, even the choice of the Church should not be underestimated. 

There are those who are more traditionalist and do not give up to marry in the parish of the neighborhood where they were born and raised, but there are also future brides who are looking for the perfect Church even if away from home. 

Perhaps you will not be surprised to know that the most beautiful Church to get married in Campania is that of the Santissima Annunziata of Vico Equense. To declare this primacy is the ranking drawn up by Marco Polo, in which to appear is not only the Church of Vico but two other churches in Campania (Santa Maria del Soccorso in Forio Ischia in third place and the Church of Santa Maria Delle Grazie ninth place).

But what makes the Church of Santissima Annunziata of Vico Equense so special?

First of all, its location is to be left out of breath. Located on one of the rocky walls of Sorrento, framed between the Gulf of Naples and the Sorrento coast, it seems to cling to a rock spur. The waves that break on them make it even more fascinating. The Church called "Punta di mare" offers an incredible panorama, perfect for couples looking for a unique location in their day.

According to surveys and studies, the Church was built on the remains of the Roman Temple dedicated to the Goddess Cybele, between 1284 and 1299 and is one of the most precious examples of Gothic architecture in Campania, especially in the interior. The external part, instead, is of Baroque style and was rebuilt in the eighteenth century. The church subsequently became the residence of the Augustinian fathers of the congregation of San Giovanni a Carbonara di Napoli. The place has become very important as it is that it has become the favorite place of noble families and not only, where to bury the dead. A testimony to this in the Church is the tomb of Pope Boniface IX. The church, after having undergone important restoration work, also due to the damages suffered by the 1980 earthquake, was reopened to worship in 1995, after almost twenty years of closure. Next to the church stands an imposing sixteenth-century bell tower built on three floors.
