MINORI

A wonderful seaside resort on the Amalfi Coast, crisscrossed by narrow paths and steps, Minori is simply enchanting. A little charming town which keeps the marks of its antique civilization with its splendid Villa Romana, famous for its beauty and art.
The Maritime Villa, a precious archeological site dating back to the first century AD, is full of  luxury rooms with mosaics, frescoes and stucco. From 987 to 1818 Minori was Episcopal See for the veneration of Saint Trofimena, Patron Saint of Minori, whose remains miraculously landed on the beach.
In past centuries the cultivation of lemons (on the typical terraces built with dry stone walls), paper processing mills and the production of pasta gave birth to a flourishing trade with foreign countries. Today, the handicraft, the handmade pasta, the lemon liqueur, the pastry related to “sfusato of Amalfi” enrich the touristic attractions of Minori.

For the last 13 years, Minori has been renowned, not only for its wonderful scenery, its evocative monuments, but also because of the media attention about an event which directly involves one of the most important aspects of life in this community: food. It is a spectacular event, which is held every year and lasts a whole week. It relives the flavours of the very foundations of the culture of food in this town, and, in a way the entire Amalfi Coast. The event, Gusta Minori (A Taste of Minori), is a real blend of art, culture, theatre, and cuisine. It promotes local produce using music and shows with original works. The “City of Taste“, as Minori declared itself on the 9th of June 2002, in the presence of Nobel prize winner Dereck Walcott, who, on that occasion was awarded honorary citizenship, is about art, folklore, scenery, a whole series of events, that can be a true theme for any vacation in this town. Visitors can feed their eyes and mind, they can discover mind blowing foods, wine, provided by people who really understand how to spoil their guests.
The smell of orange blossoms, the taste of the sea with the green and the blue color of the tourist walks, the famous events which brings out the local food traditions and much more… Minori a little diamond of the Amalfi Coast, a must!
