San Michele Church at Capoliveri

Capoliveri
Località San Rocco

The Church at Capoliveri is from the first half of the 12th century and is the oldest example of Romanesque architecture on the Island.

In the San Rocco area, just outside the town, near an abandoned cemetery is the San Michele at Capoliveri Church, the remains of a medieval church of Pisan architecture.

Pope Gregory XI, during his return voyage from Avignon to Rome in 1376, stopped at Capoliveri and said mass in San Michele Church.

The church of Capoliveri is from the first half of the 12th century and is the oldest example of Romanesque architecture on the Island. From the little that remains we can see that it was the best artistic example of Romanesque churches on Elba.

Of note are the perfect walls, built of rectangular blocks of local pink-coloured limestone.
