Cetara (SA) Campania

At the feet of Monte Falerio, on the beautiful Amalfi Coast, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is the small village of Cetara, a place of ancient seafaring traditions that winds its way inland from the water, through vineyards and olive groves. The identity and layout of the settlement has always been shaped by the sea, as demonstrated by the fortified tower built to defend it from the invasions of the Turks who arrived here on their ships. For centuries, fishermen have departed from here for the waters of Algeria and Morocco, where they catch anchovies, before preserving them in salt and selling them at the main Italian markets. This fishing tradition is still strong today, as is apparent in the various boats moored along the coasts, the fishermen’s tales, and the legends of the sea.
