The small town of Atrani lies within an inlet below the steep mountainous cliffs of the Amalfi coast immediately east of Amalfi itself. This sketch depicts a view of Atrani from the west, on the coastal road to Amalfi. The distinctive bell-tower rising above the spiral coastal substructures to the right of the composition is the thirteenth-century Church of Santa Maria Maddalena.1 Visible in the distance to the east is the town of Maiori which Turner has attempted to spell in a written annotation.
The church now possesses two domes added during the early twentieth century.
