All around the suburb is possible to see vineyard, lemon grove and olive grove, alternate with rocky mountains. A fluroshing nature, a sort of little paradise opened to all the visitors.
Cetara is a little ancient suburb at the bottom of the Monte Falerzio in a valley harvests by lemon grove. It's an old village linked to its history and traditions. Cetara has always been a place of fishermen, the name of the village itself cames from "cetari", which means tuna sellers.
The history of Cetara follows the path of Amalfi's, like many villages on the coast. The turkish attacked the village in 1534 taking a huge part of the population in sleavery. After this bad experience the inhebitant of the village has built a big watch tower in order to defend the coast from the enemies. The name of the tower is Torre Vicereale, is possible to see it also in the present days.
Cetara is quiet and tidy at the present time. It has its original structure, with the houses facing the harbour and many alleys e steps that lead outside the village. Walking in the little streets, following an immaginary path that brings you to the mountains, ii's possible to see the gardens and the coloured backyards full of amazing plants and trees and obviously the washing on the line in the sun, but the most important things are the flavors of the meals prepared by the Cetara's women. The smells of: tomato, fresh basel, anchovies with mint are astonishing, many times these aromas seem to call us inside the houses asking for hospitality, this could be a good idea because the population is so friendly.
We are sure that when you will came back home from Cetara, also your luggage will smells of lemons.
