IL paese che non c'è
Furore, one of the "UNESCO World Eritage Sites", is a village characterized by a hilly and a coastal territory, like many towns

Furore, starting from the coast, at the Fiordo di Furore, sea level, surrounded by the towns of Conca dei Marini and Praiano, reaches an altitude of about 600 m above sea borders with the City of Agerola. This privileged location, sunny and breezy, has allowed the spread of lemon trees, olive groves and vineyards in the fields terraced, and today Furore is included in the "City of Wine" with prestigious wines such as Furore Amalfi Coast and the Fior d ' Uva di Marisa Cuomo.
The territory of Furore is picturesquely divided into three districts: San Jaco (district of the Ciuccio), Sant'Agnello (The Cat) and Sant'Elia (district de la Cicala). The landscape is characterized by the presence of many churches with bell towers with the top covered in majolica tiles: Santa Maria della Pietà, St. James dating from the eleventh century (which have recently been found some frescoes attribuited to Odorisio to the school of Giotto), St. Michael the Archangel, St. Pasquale Baylon (Patron of Furore), S. Elijah the Prophet, built in 1300, renovated at the end of 1400 (preserves a remarkable triptych of 1482 of the painter Angelo Antonello da Capua, depicting the Madonna and Child with St. Bartholomew and St. Elias on the sides), plus numerous chapels
