Furore, Conca de' Marini

Furore and Conca de' Marini: fiord and grotto


Conca dei Marini is a little village enclosed in a natural bay, less known from other villages of Amalfi coast, but not less attractive. Conca dei Marini is another jewel of the Amalfi Coast to visit, with its fabulous Emerald Cave (Grotta dello Smeraldo). The Grotto is an inlet of the coast, where nature seems to have contained all its spectacular colors to capture and amaze the eyes of those who enter in. In addition to natural beauty, Conca dei Marini has nice buildings like the Convent of Santa Rosa, the Church of St. Anthony of Padua with the beautiful tiled bell tower and the Tower of Silence known for having been in the past a cemetery.

Furore

Among the mountains, invisible to those who follow the Amalfi coast, lies the town of Furore, a village split in two between the austerity of the rock and the sea. Famous is the Fjord, typical of Nordic landscapes, looking from the Tyrrhenian Sea and the houses spread along the cliff, that seem ready to jump into the sea. Furore has two really peculiars uniqueness: is called the Painted City, and is a city that doesn’t actually exist. All around the long road that twists down the cliff there are many remarkable graffiti-paint, colorful and magnetic characterize all the village of Furore, from which takes the name. The second uniqueness is that Furore is spread all along the cliff and there is not a real centre or a mall where to walk, but from each narrow road, house or terrace, is possible to admire a wonderful panorama over the Amalfi coast.
