Conca dei Marini

Conca dei Marini, with less than 700 inhabitants, is one of the smallest villages of the Amalfi Coast, that is Unesco World Heritage site. Its origins date back to 500 B.C. when it became a roman colony.

The destiny of Conca dei Marini was dependent upon the ancient Amalfi maritime republic,  whose  powerful fleet docked in the natural inlet that today is a frame to the little beach.

Beyond the promontory where you can see a XVI century Saracenic tower, there is  he entrance to the Emerald grotto, extraordinary enchanting cavern in which the typical elements of an inland grotto exist side by side with those of a marine grotto .

In the Santa Rosa nunnery, today a luxury hotel one of the most famous neapolitan cakes has been invented: the „sfogliatella“ Santa Rosa.
