The twin village of Amalfi evocative as a crib made ​​of alleys , stairs and houses clinging to the rock.

A village that has tied its history to that of the nearby Amalfi and that has preserved its medieval structure , a cascade of houses interspersed with ” stairs” , covered roads , small gardens.
Perched on a rock overlooking the sea and the mouth of the Valle del Dragone , Atrani is the smallest town in southern Italy and appears to the visitor as the scene of a crib.
Today the road Coast has created nearly a barrier between the town and the sea , so you go down to the waves only through some passages like the one in Piazza Umberto I, once built as a shelter for boats from storm surges , it now seems a theatrical facing the sea.
Here is the Church of San Salvatore del Bireto , so called because it took place the investiture of the Dukes of Amalfi with the imposition of the ducal cap.
Another place to visit, especially for its incredible location , is the Collegiate Church of St. Mary Magdalene that dominates the country in its eastern part and stands out in the light with its tiled dome and a baroque facade . And ‘ here that many marriages are celebrated , because of its typical position ” above the sea “.
Near the church is the Grotto of Masaniello where , according to tradition , the revolutionary fled , near what was his mother’s house .
Particularly striking is the church of Santa Maria del Bando , dating back to the eleventh century . Leaning against a rock wall below the Torre dello Ziro overlooking Atrani .
