Adorable coastal village: Charming holiday apartments

The friendly coastal village of Minori is located between Amalfi and Maiori. Its name is not derived from its size, but is of ancient origin. At Roman times, Minori was called Reginna Minoris as opposed to the adjacent Reginna Maioris (today’s Maiori) and was named after the river carrying the same name and running through the village.

Basilica S. Trofimena in the village centre is worth a visit; the relics of Saint Trofimena – once the patron saint of the whole Costiera Amalfitana – are kept there.

In 1932, the discovery of a Roman villa marittima dating from the first century AD at Minori bore witness to the fact that „Reginna Minoris“ used to be a popular holiday resort with well-to-do Romans.

Today, visitors to this archaeological site will meet with well preserved frescos and floor mosaics.

Former centre of pasta production

At the times of the maritime republic of Amalfi, one of the most significant shipyards was to be found at Minori. Later on, the coastal village's economy was based mainly on the production of fresh pasta.

In the realm of Naples-Sicily, Minori was one of the centres of pasta production and the numerous mills in town its visible proof. Later, production was transferred inland to Gragnano, which, today, is famous for its pasta all over Italy. Meanwhile, agriculture in Minori is based on the cultivation of citrus fruit – lemon and orange trees frame the coastal village, which is typical for the Amalfi coast.
