The church's name reminds us of the town, inside the building there is the Black Madonna with the Child in which hides a legend, as follows: the image belonged to a cargo of a ship from the East, and once it came to the bay of the land it could not be taken back to the sea, because of a sudden calm.  While the sailors were busy trying to move and leave, the captain and his men instead heard a voice urging them to drop anchor: "Posa Posa", said the spokesperson, from where the name of the city comes, Positano. 
Another peculiarity is that beneath the church were found many remains of a Roman villa which was buried by ash during the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD (the one of Pompei).
