Maratea

Maratea is a town on the Tyrrhenian coast known as "the Pearl of the Tyrrhenian" because of its beautiful scenery and coastline. Owing to the considerable number of its churches and chapels it has also been described as "the town with 44 churches". It has approximately 32 km of rocky coastline, with more than twenty beaches. One of the main characteristics of Maratea is the variety of its landscapes, from breath-taking sea views to wooded hillsides and majestic mountains which sweep down to the sea creating steep cliffs. The centre of the town, called Maratea Borgo, (meaning "Maratea's Old Town") is situated on the northern slopes of Mount San Biagio. Maratea is a very peaceful stay, ideal for a relaxing break. Others sights in Maratea include six coastal watchtowers, dating to the 16th-17th centuries. Also the impressive statue of Christ the Redeemer, or the Christ of Maratea, built of pure Carrara marble in 1965 by Bruno Innocenti, a sculptor from Florence. It is located on the top of Monte San Biagio, right in front of the basilica.
