Furore was founded by the Romans and thanks to the shape of the coast here, this village was never invaded by the Saraceni pirates. Furore is located in the "Furore fjord", and consists of two villages, one by the sea, the other up on the mountains.
The two villages are connected by a long staircase, built during the age of Amalfi republic. This had been the only connection from the sea to the mountains, for a long time.
The fjord of Furore can be reached by the S.S. 163 from Amalfi to Positano (Amalfi coast drive). The fjord is right after the “Emerald grotto" entrance on the road.
Places to visit:
The church of S.Elia, built in the XIII century, where you can see a triptych of Angelo Antonello da Capua. Long time ago fishermen lived the village by the sea, but this was later forsaken. Today they're still trying to get the place back. Ruins of a paper mill, and of an old mill can be found here.
