Reginna Maior by the ancient Romans. Its history is bound to that of Amalfi,
which is only 4 km (2.5 miles) away. The church of Santa Maria del Mare
dominates the village with its beautiful dome decorated with majolica. Many
historical buildings stand around the place, including the ancient defense
towers, the most famous of which is the Torre Normanna, built in the IX century.

crystal clear, and the air is filled with the perfume of the area's famous lemon
trees. You will be able to stroll along the gorgeous promenade along the sea and
