SORRENTO PENINSULA

SORRENTO PENINSULA

Charming, romantic, delicious are the three adjectives that describe a beautiful part of land called the Sorrentine Peninsula. There are many towns here like Sorrento, Piano di Sorrento, Meta, S. Agnello, Vico Equense and Massa Lubrense, Sant'Agata sui due Golfi e Nerano. Sorrento is certainly the most representative town that lies on the volcanic rock terrace, dominated by the mountain peak (500 meters high) that slopes to the sea in the middle of luxuriant plants.
The Sorrentine peninsula is a historical place and has many legends; the most famous is ‘'the myth of the sirens'', whence Sorrento's name- Sirenide.
It is said that the sirens used to live here - legendary creatures, half women half fish, just like in the tradition of Homer. The mermaids used to make the sailors sick with their persuasive songs and make their boats crush on the rocks.
The Greeks, Etruscans, Romans, Normans and Spanish used to come here because of the beauty, location, richness of this place.
Nowadays, the economy of this land is mostly based on tourism, thanks to its nature and location. The agriculture is also important and is based on production of citrus trees, walnuts, olive oil and the transformation of typical products and the creation of some sweeties and liquors like ‘'delizia al limone'' and the famous ‘'limoncello''. Also handicraft has a long story - with characteristic ‘'intarsio art'' and laces. The peninsula offers tours allowing to get familiar with ancient tastes, historical vines, products, manufacturers and characeristics of the land. The place is famous for Limoncello di Sorrento ( liquor made of lemon peels, alcohol, sugar and water), Olio DOP Penisola Sorrentina, Pasta di Gragnano, Dairy di Agerola and various temples of taste and touring around wineries and olive mills. Easter Week processions are also famous. The one of Good Friday, in Sorrento, is among the most beautiful in the world. The processions have their roots in the Middle Ages, they continued during the Spanish rule and are still organized nowadays. One of the them is the procession of the Confraternity of Sorrento which has greatly influenced the history of the city and the peninsula.
