This small sea town covers a territory
of only 1 square km. It is the smallest municipality in
Europe. The town is still that of Middle Ages and it is
very well kept: narrow streets with vaults and arches,
all covered in a white mantle of lime.
Atrani is situated between the sea and the high cliffs,
on the narrow valley del Dragone, at the feet of Civita
mount and Aureo mount that divides it from Amalfi. Atrani
is really picturesque with its small beach that the fishing
lights leave during the night to go fishing, thus lighting
the sea in a very charming way.
beauty of Atrani, with alleys, arches, small squares
and the typical "scalinatelle" (small
staircases), is represented by the small beach surrounded
by the tangle
of the houses. This small town is like a crib, especially
during the night with all the lights.
The most interesting monument is San Salvatore de Birecto
Church together with Santa Maria Maddalena Church.
