UNESCO World Heritage Site, Amalfi in my opinion yes
differentiates from other centers. It offers not just a landscape
pleasant but carries with it a wealth of remarkable history: it was the Republic
Marinara; in the seventeenth century there was the Maritime Code of Amalfi, better
known with the name of Tavole Amalfitane; in the eleventh century the Duomo was built
of Amalfi in Arab-Sicilian style and dedicated to the patron saint Andrea;
and finally the error of interpretation of a Latin text of the philologist
Giambattista Pio claimed that the compass had been invented
dall'amalfitano Flavio Gioia (In the text in question (Amalphi in
Campania veteri magnetis usus inventus a Flavio traditur), however,
Flavio should not be understood as the inventor of the compass, but only
as the one who reported the news).
Wedged between the Lattari Mountains, scattered with citrus groves, and
the sea, Amalfi is the pearl of the coast that takes its name from it.
country is formed by white houses clinging to the rock, in a
interweaving of alleys and stairs, and is leaning against a steep slope
excavated in the valley of the river Canneto. A solar nature, intact and
wild that creates a magical atmosphere. The entrance to Amalfi is watched
from the beautiful tower of SAN FRANCESCO, today called "Saracena" and above,
the hostel obtained from the ancient convent, founded by San Francesco in
1222. Deleted following the subversive laws, retains a
very precious CHIOSTRO. Attached to the convent is the church of SAN ANTONIO,
overlooking the sea.
Amalfi is an extremely picturesque city & nbsp; characterized by
enchanting panoramic views; incredible cascading cliffs to peak
on the sea; a mild climate; delicious little beaches; bleached houses
grouped together, clinging to
rocky slopes; a wonderful cave (Emerald cave)
rich in stalactites and stalagmites. The marina is very well equipped
also to reach the beautiful beaches like that of Santa
Cross. The historic port, as well as being obligatory for all
departments and for excursions along the coast, to Capri and
Sorrento, still relives today the glories of the republican past, being
theater of the Historical Regatta of the Maritime Republics, which takes place,
in medieval costumes, every 4 years in June.
Do not miss a stop at the Museo della Carta, even today
produced and refined with eighteenth-century techniques. In summer Amalfi is the
capital of worldliness and fun with countless
events, such as the Lemon Festival, as a tribute to the typical product
of the Coast and the exquisite liqueur derived from it, and i
creative art workshops.
