Another gem of the Amalfi Coast, Furore takes its name from the "the sound of the raging sea pounding against the valley below". It was, for its particular physical and geographical location, an impregnable stronghold, even at the times of the Saracen invasions. The fjord, one of the most picturesque and evocative in Italy, has always been a natural harbor, famous for its flourishing trade and the development of the old industrial plants, such as paper mills and mills.
It is also known by the nickname of "the country that does not exist" (the Italian Neverland), since there is not a real important centre but just small groups of houses that sprout isolated from the ridges of the cliffs. The "en plein air" art gallery is very singular: it is composed by over one hundred "walls of author" and features murals and sculptures that make Furore a "painted village". The municipal area includes the coastal area of the fjord, on the border between Praiano and Conca dei Marini, and grows up the valley up to an altitude of 600 meters above sea level, surrounded by the mountains of Agerola.
The town of Furore was a simple district of the Royal city of Amalfi: a place where the exiles and the outcasts of society lived, once sent away from city, in an inhospitable, sparsely populated area with no lands to cultivate. It is mentioned for the first time in a land registry of 1752. In the Fifties of the XX century, Furore was the set of a famous film "L'Amore" and, at the same time, of the passionate and tormented love affair between director Roberto Rossellini and famous Italian actress Anna Magnani.
But the most attractive thing about this village-non-village is its beautiful setting: the olive trees, the grapevines on terraces going up the mountainside, the bowers of lemons with nets stretched between poles, the red roofs and colorful majolicas on the small bell towers, the brilliantly colored flowers of the wild blackberry brambles, and the sea: blue, down below, in the corner of your eye, ever present.

Among the major historical, architectural and natural sites of interest, not to miss:
- the Church of St. James the Apostle (or Holy Jaco), dating back to the XI century, built on the ruins of an antique rural church. The structure is flanked by a multi-storey bell tower, topped by a spire covered with majolica mosaic tiles. During the last renovation, in the spaces below the right aisle, a small series of frescoes of the school of Giotto were brought to light, reproducing scenes of life of Santa Margherita.
- the Church of St. Michael the Archangel, in Baroque style, although very simple in style, it features three naves with pointed arches supported by baseless columns with simple capitals;
- the Church of St. Elias, dating from the XIII century, and built in a suburb area of the village. Inside it preserves a precious wooden triptych representing the Madonna with Saints Bartholomew and Elia (1479) by the artist Angelo Antonello from Capua;
- the Church of Santa Maria;
- the Hermitage of Santa Barbara, a Medieval monastic rural site, of which today remain only some interesting ruins, including those of the church, hidden between the bushes near the cave of Santa Barbara, often used in the past (like other caves in the area) by the monks;
- the Fjord of Furore, a deep rift into the rock at the mouth of a steep valley that falls into the sea, which retains a small beach with a tiny and picturesque fishing village. Here among the picturesque "monazzeni" began the stormy relationship between Roberto Rossellini and "Nannarella" during the filming of "L'Amore".
The houses, today inhabited have been transformed into an interesting Ecomuseo, which consists of several sections: the paper-mill, the paper drying room, the herbarium and the museum Costadiva .
The fjord is overridden by a bridge suspended at 30 meters high, along which runs the main coast road. Here, on the first Sunday in July, takes place a stage of the of Marmeeting (High Diving Championship).
