Erchie (Maiori)

Erchie di Maiori

Erchie di Maiori

Description

Erchie is a picturesque hamlet of the town of Maiori, located along the main road (SS 163 Amalfitana) that from Salerno leads to Positano, after crossing the town of Cetara. It has ancient origins: according to the tradition Erchie was founded by Hercules, who stopped at the foot of the Mount Falerzio; now it has about one hundred residents. During the Middle Age Erchie enjoyed the ius piscariae, which allowed the population to use the tenth part of the catch, thanks to the presence of the powerful Benedictine Abbey of Santa Maria de Irchi in the area. The abbey was razed to the ground by a violent storm and, on its ruins the actual church of Santa Maria Assunta was built, in Renaissance style.
On the eastern side of the nice beach there is the imposing quadrangular bastion of medieval origin, built by Charles I of Anjou in 1278.
Small white houses perched on the hill, narrow alleys, the scent of the lemon treed terraces, the pebble beach, the fresh breeze and a crystal-clear sea: all the characteristic features of the Amalfi coast enclosed in a few square Km, not too far from Maiori.
