Lonely Planet review
A striking 15th-century watchtower, Torre del Mare, now serves as the bell tower to Ischia’s cathedral. The current church, designed by Antonio Massinetti and completed in 1751, stands on the site of two older churches, one built in the 13th century and the other in the 17th century. Step inside its peeling interior and you’ll find the original 14th-century baptismal font, a Romanesque wooden crucifix and a wistful 18th-century canvas by Giacinto Diano.
