A pleasurable walk through the white alleyways, this village is rich of medieval architecture and a precious testimony of art. The most significant being the church of St Salvatore de Birecto in the main square. At the time of the republic of Amalfi the church was the palatine chapel where Dukes were crowned and where their ashes were kept. At the top of Mount Aureo, the church of St Maria del Bando so called due to the legend telling that the lady bestowed grace to a man “bandit” unjustly condemned to be hanged. Nearby the “Masaniello’s Cave” ware Masaniello, a revolutionary took refuge while being hunted by Neapolitan viceron’s soldiers.
