the fjord of furore

Furore is a town and comune in the province of Salerno in the Campania region of south-western Italy. Furore is located in the Coast of Amalfi.

The municipality of Furore expands from the sea level, where there is the hamlet of the Fiordo di Furore, and a little civil parish partly belonging to Praiano named Marina di Praia, up to Agerola (550 meters above sea level). The village is subdivided into 3 districts (contrade): Cicala (Sant'Elia), Ciuccio (Santo Jaco) and Gatta (Sant'Agnelo).

 

Main Sights :

* The so-called fiordo di Furore, in fact a ria created by the Schiato torrent which flows here from Agerola.

* Church of Sant'Elia

* Saint Giacomo Church, with a collection of religious iconography of female Saints.

* Saint Michele Church, with an overlapping of Gothic elements, such as the sharp arch, with Romanesque figurative decorations.

* The open-air museum of Murals, along the road, painted on the walls of the houses of Furore.

Furore's Fjord

A small crack in the rocks, an ancient gorge that was a hidden place for the bandits in the past, an inlet where the sea can show all its power. The Furore's fjord is sort or natural port, where is possible to arrive only by the sea side, surmounted by a natural rock arch that perfectly complete the majesty of this place.
