Palazzo Lauritano: culture, history and tradition heritage

Palazzo Lauritano is located in Agerola, a lush and green valley on the Amalfi Coast, immersed in the charm of a millennial history: breathtaking paths, culinary traditions, unmistakable panoramas are the synthesis of a culture born since Imperial Rome times, during the trade of the Ancient Maritime Republic of Amalfi and the Royal Courts of Naples, thanks to the arts of Silk and Wool and the goodness of its gastronomic products of ancient tradition, still known and appreciated all over the world.

Palazzo Lauritano is centrally located in the hamlet of San Lazzaro, a holiday destination of Naples’ high bourgeoisie since the nineteenth century. Here poets and intellectuals found inspiration, in fact, the musicians Francesco Cilea and Salvatore Di Giacomo composed masterpieces such as The Lament of Frederick in the opera Arlesiania and the song Luna d’Agerola.

The view from Palazzo Lauritano dominates all Agerola and overlooks the wonderful sea of the Amalfi Coast that blends in with the blue of the sky, giving serenity in the man’s soul.

Just a few meters from the bus stop to Amalfi or Naples, the Palazzo is close to the central square, restaurants and pizzerias, shops, bars and pubs. From Palazzo Lauritano you can walk until the suggestive Punta Belvedere, from which you can enjoy a panoramic view of the Amalfi Coast; the residence is linked to the Path of the Gods, as one of the ten most beautiful walks in the world.
