Fun Fact

If you’re zipping past the coast by boat, you’ll most likely spot many circular or square-shaped stone towers dotting the shoreline. Built between the 9th and 16th century, these towers defended small towns against pirate raids and Turkish invasions. Some of the famous ones to look out for: the Crestarella tower in Vietri sul Mare, the Cetara tower and the three towers found in Positano: Sponda, Trasita and Fornillo.
