twelfth century d.cr. a ship carrying a picture of Our Lady was
going through the water just before Positano. The wind dropped and
the ship could not in any way to sail when sailors heard a voice
saying "Laying" from the painting of the Virgin Mary.

church dedicated to the Assumption (celebrated with all honor on
August 15 of each year). The Church of Santa Maria Assunta is now
one of the most beautiful in Italy.
