The center extends harmoniously over a high tuff terrace, which overlooks the sea from a height of 50 meters, in the midst of lush vegetation.
The historic center still shows the orthogonal layout of the streets of Roman origin, while towards the mountain it is surrounded by sixteenth-century walls.
There are the Cathedral, rebuilt in the 15th century, with a neo-Gothic façade, and the Church of San Francesco d’Assisi, with a remarkable 14th-century cloister.
In the “Correale museum” collections of Greek and Roman objects and Capodimonte porcelain are exhibited, with a section of 17th-19th century painting; from the park you can also enjoy a magnificent view of the gulf. At Punta del Capo, 3 km to the west, there are Roman remains believed to be from the villa of Pollio Felice (1st century AD).
Distance from Positano about 17 Km
