Conca dei Marini

Like all towns on the coast, the history of Conca dei Marini is closely related to events that occurred in the Marine Republic of Amalfi. In former times it was a mere fishing village; nowadays it is a well-known tourism center thanks to its characteristic houses in Mediterranean style, with cupolas and white lime walls, located right along the sea front.
The Saracen Tower (or White Tower) is located on a rocky promontory called "Capo di Conca"; it is an ancient sixteenth-century defensive tower, one of the most beautiful on the Amalfi coast without doubt. Not so far it is possible to visit the "Grotta dello Smeraldo" (Emerald Grotto), a karstic cavity so colled because of the emerald green tonalities that the sea water assumes.
The church of St. Pancrazio, from which it is enjoyed a breathtaking view, is really suggestive. In the charming convent of Santa Rosa, located behind a steep slope, the nuns are known for producing the delicious "sfogliatella Santa Rosa", a type of pastry filled with cream and fruit pieces.
