Praiano


There are things that could not be described or cleared with an image, because they have to be inwardly lived in order to admire all their beauty and mysterious glamour.
Praiano is one of those "things", set like a coral in the Mediterranean, its territory lies between 0 and 750 meters above sea level. The village is split into two areas: Praiano rises on the east side, the fraction of Vettica Maggiore on the westwards. This division was ordered by the needs of the inhabitants of this ancient village, where until a few decades ago they lived with what the place could offer, mostly fishing and farming fields.
The history of this village dates back to a period prior to the founding of the Marine Republic of Amalfi. Documents confirm that it was titled as "Universitas" during the Angevin period, this meant that enjoyed a certain autonomy.
In the Middle Ages,enchanted by this land and its landscapes, the wealthy Doges of the Amalfi Republic choose it as a destination for their vacations.
The population centers were born in the lower part of the village, near the sea that originally appeared as the only source of life. In later years the population begins to move toward the mountains in search of safety, persecuted to natural disasters and the continuing attacks by Saracen, while the coast is fortified with watchtowers age "Angevin" and later defensive positions
The population was always very devoted to religion; to testify there are the 15 churches that stand on the whole territory.
