Although the origins are mixed with the legend, all the historical interpretations agree in placing the birth of Amalfi to the imperial period, identifying it as a place of otiumper wealthy exponents of the Roman aristocracy that right here, between the quiet of a pristine nature and a a landscape of unrivaled beauty, it preferred to retreat to get away from the hectic life of the City. But it was in the high-medieval period that Amalfi imposed itself as queen of the Mediterranean, entertaining flourishing trade with both the Arab peoples in North Africa and the Byzantine Empire: the Amalfi ships, loaded with timber, sailed to the vault of the routes Eastern countries where they bought gold, precious stones, precious fabrics and spices, enriching merchants and inhabitants of the Maritime Republic and, at the same time, catalyzing plans for conquering enemy powers.
Amalfi contains all that good and beautiful offers the Amalfi Coast, mixing the glories of the past with the scent of lemons and the sea, craftsmanship, artistic and natural heritage up to a gastronomic tradition that reproduces in its recipes the constant commingling between sea and mountain. A wide range of opportunities, therefore, for a unique travel experience.
Due to its size and its shape, Amalfi is visited on foot, starting right from Piazza Duomo, the heart and the heart of the town. From here, an intricate maze as evocative of narrow streets and steps connect the main road with the built-up areas close to the mountain wall, going back all over the valley floor. A vertical landscape, in short, sealed in the inner precollinare fascia by terraces of lemons. The urban layout has maintained its medieval appearance intact, with the access doors (Porta Marina or De Sandala, Porta West, Porta Hospitalis) narrow paved streets, supportive alleys, alleys and steps leading to wide openings and squares, on which overlooking beautiful medieval buildings and ancient noble chapels.
The monument par excellence is certainly the Cathedral of Sant'Andrea, preceded by a scenic staircase, which dominates and captures with its grandeur the entire Piazza Duomo. It is flanked by the Basilica of the Crucifix, now home to the Museum of Sacred Art, from the Bell tower with Arab-Norman style bell tower, and the Cloister of Paradise, an elegant quadriportico with pointed arches in Norman style.
In reality it is the entire urban center of Amalfi that can be considered an open-air museum, preserving intact the architectural and historical testimonies of its past, which can be read again through the stratification of the centuries. Churches, hats, monasteries, convents, aristocratic houses and watchtowers are perfectly integrated into the urban fabric of the coastal town, showing visitors all the splendor of the First Maritime Republic of Italy.
Amalfi Potenza Marinara
The maritime history of Amalfi today remains:
- the Arsenali della Repubblica, the only example of medieval masonry arsenal in Southern Italy, of which today remain two lanes divided by 10 pillars.
- the maritime code called Tabula de Amalpha, kept in a seventeenth-century paper copy at the Civic Museum, was developed between the eleventh and the fourteenth century and its chapters contain surprising news regarding the advance and progress of the maritime society of Amalfi.
- the tradition of the invention of the compass, as an instrument of magnetic "dry" maritime orientation, which the Amalfi spread throughout the Mediterranean in the first half of the 13th century. The mythical inventor Amalfitan Flavio Gioia, in honor of which there is a bronze monument in the square in front of the sea, in reality has never existed: it is, in fact, an error of interpretation due to Renaissance writers of central Italy.
Speaking of Amalfi you immediately think of the sea and the sunny beaches: from Marina Grande, which opens up like a natural amphitheater on the Mediterranean, to the most reserved beaches of Duoglio and Santa Croce, natural ravines close to the Monti Lattari wall.
Amalfi, however, also offers a wide and dense network of mountain paths that once served to connect the various settlements of the Duchy of Amalfi to the fortified cities. A heritage of inestimable value both for the naturalistic richness that it manages to express and for the beauty of the landscapes that unfold before the eyes of those who walk along these paths.
The Valle delle Ferriere Nature Reserve, a unique environment full of waterfalls and streams that create the ideal conditions for the proliferation of a very rich fauna and flora: here you can, in fact, easily observe the Woodwardia radicans, an endemic species of fern, and in rare amphibians like the Apennine newt
