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).

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