Leaving the Villa, the first stop is the church of San Michele a Torre, frescoed in Byzantine style. Continue through the lush valley that separates Minori from Maiori, in a riot of Mediterranean scrub and lemon groves, where the Sfusato Amalfitano is produced, the local lemon, famous all over the world for its exceptional shape and organoleptic properties. The route ends at the Collegiate Church of Santa Maria a Mare in Maiori, crosses the historic centre and wedged between the alleys of the ancient “Lazzaro” district, continues along Via Montecorvo, a suggestive walk that leads to the Torre Normanna

Convent of San Nicola

It is the place of the heart of the Minoresi, the destination for the pilgrimage of May 1st, the day in which St. Nicholas is celebrated.

Leaving the convent, return to the Path of the Lemons, descending along the Mayorese side of Monte Torina (sent. CAI 315a). Continue to Maiori.

Visit of Minori

Villa Carlotta> Via Casa Marrazza> historic centre

Leaving the Villa, in front of the car park, on the external side of the road, take the steps that go to the centre of Minori.
On the beach of the ancient Rheginna Minor, a wonderful Villa Marittima was built in the first century and made it first tourist resort on the Amalfi Coast. At the time of the Minori Maritime Republic, it became an important merchant port, home to naval arsenals, warehouses and in 987 a bishopric. Over the centuries to come, the town produced paper, lemons, and the famous “Pasta della Costa” ... Today, Minori is a “city of flavours” and a visit cannot not taste the gastronomic and confectionery specialties. Do not miss the walks through the alleys of the historic centre, to reach the narrow churches, the Bell Tower of the Annunziata, the Church of Santa Trofimena, the church of Santa Lucia, the churches of San Gennaro and Giuliano in Villamena or the Roman Villa Marittima...
