Minori is a small and pleasant Amalfi Coast sea-town. Its name derives from the ancient latin name "Rheginna Minor" that came from the river Rheginna, which still runs through the valley of Minori. With a small beach and tiny houses, constructed using ancient building techniques, Minori is the ideal place in which to relax, far away from the frenetic pace of the city: a perfect destination for mooring up during a real luxury motor yacht charter in Amalfi Coast or just relaxing during your romantic sailing cruise among the Partenopee islands route. Like other major towns of the Amalfi Coast Minori was founded by ancient roman aristocrats who chose the place for its beauty and mild climate, and built their luxurious villas here.
Minori soon started to produce paper, liquors and other lemon specialties, since lemons are a typical product of this area. This production is still a main activity of the town and is carried on with strict respect of the genuine local tradition. Minori is a good destination not only for yacht sailing vacation in Amalfi coast, but also since it is a rich cultural site. Minori houses many works of great artistic value in its Cathedral, the Church of St Giuliano, the Church of the Madonna delle Grazie, the Church of St Giovanni Battist in the bay, and the Church of St Nicola. If you come to Minori make sure you visit the ancient roman villa and the Basilica of Santa Trofimena, and the churchs of Santa Lucia, San Gennaro and San Michele as well, good examples of southern Italian architecture. If you came on a romantic sailing yacht or on a luxury motor yacht Minori will offer you unforgettable moments for an amazing sailing vacation in the Amalfi Coast.
