The charm of Torca and its hidden treasures

Category:Blog,Places Tags : 

Torca is a fraction of the municipality of Massa Lubrense, located on the southern side of the Sorrento peninsula.

The marina of Torca, Crapolla, probably hosted a Greek temple dedicated to Apollo in ancient times. The etymological origin of the name “Torca” could therefore derive from the “Theorica” ​​street. Indeed, they were frequented by long processions called “Theoriae” directed towards the aforementioned temple

According to the tradition, it is believed that Saint Pietro landed in Crapolla during his journey to Rome. Subsequently, the Abbey of San Pietro was built on the presumed site of the temple of Apollo, a monastery affiliated to the order of Black Benedictine friars. The original structure of the abbey included three naves with columns made of marble and granite, frescoes narrating the Stories of the Holy Scriptures and floors decorated with mosaics.

The Chapel of San Pietro now stands on the area of ​​his remains. It can be reached via the path that leads from the small square of Torca to the fjord. Made with the same stones used to build the original abbey, the chapel represents a tangible link with the past.

The trails that pass through Torca

In Torca the roadway ends, leaving space for a network of paths that wind through landscapes that are breathtaking for their natural and wild beauty.

Crapolla

The Crapolla fjord is among the most evocative natural coves of the Sorrento Peninsula. Accessible exclusively on foot, via a well-marked path, the route from Torca is characterized by a notable difference in altitude of around 350 meters and a long staircase of around 700 steps. This makes the walk along the mountainside demanding, but a rewarding challenge. The experience becomes immersive as you enter environments characterized by still uncontaminated nature, enriched by a significant archaeological heritage and panoramas that will lasts as indelible in the memory.

Sirenuse Trail

Immersed between sky and sea, the Sirenuse Trail is linked to the Greek myth of the sirens. Its name is a tribute to the three islets now known as Li Galli. From these, according to legend, the sirens attempted to enchant Ulysses with their seductive song.

Extending for approximately 9 km, the trail passes through the picturesque village of Torca. The suggestive atmosphere is enriched by the lush vegetation. The breathtaking views open onto the sea of ​​the Amalfi Coast, the islets of Li Galli, the stacks of Capri and the rock of Vetara, making the entire experience unforgettable.

Among sirens and sunsets: in the heart of Termini

Category:Blog,Places,Pro Loco,Travel Tags : 

The village of Termini, with a fascinating past, goes from being a Greek colony to a tourist destination.

Today it is one of the most popular destinations for travelers looking for a relaxing holiday, among enchanting places that can be explored especially via hiking itineraries.

Termini constitutes the western end of the Sorrento peninsula, a thin strip of mountainous land that juts westward into the sea. This place is steeped in myths and legends linked to the sea and the mountains, with cultivated terraces, citrus groves and olive groves overlooking the splendid blue. The wild cliffs fall into the sea animated by the currents that intertwine at Punta Campanella, right in front of the island of Capri.

The Church of Santa Croce

An example of a place of worship in Termini is the Church of Santa Croce. It that dates back to ancient times, testifying to the religious history of the area. This church, dedicated to the Holy Cross, stands soberly in the village square and represents an important spiritual point of reference for the local community.

Monte San Costanzo in Termini

Just before the limestone peninsula plunges into the blue waters, stands Monte San Costanzo, the highest peak in Massa Lubrense. The hill rises approximately 500 meters above sea level and boasts absolutely breathtaking landscapes on each side: on the Bay of Ieranto, on the cove of Mitigliano, on the gulf of Naples and that of Salerno, and on the island of Capri.

The path that leads to Monte San Costanzo starts right in the heart of Termini, in Piazza Santa Croce. It is also part of the longer Athena Trail.

On the highest point of the promontory stands the Chapel of San Costanzo. It is a small church dating back to the second half of the 16th century which gives to the surrounding area an almost mystical atmosphere. For most of the time the church is closed to the public, but every year on May 14 hundreds of faithful gather for the procession towards Monte San Costanzo, where the Holy Mass is celebrated in honor of the Saint.

Punta Campanella

Punta Campanella is the end of the peninsula, facing Capri and dividing the Gulf of Naples from that of Salerno. It can be reached on foot via a path of about three kilometers that starts from the Termini square. Along the way it is possible to see elements that tell stories of past eras, such as the remains of a Roman villa and two of the defensive watchtowers that stand along the Lubrense coast.

The M.A.R.E. project

Category:Blog,Places Tags : 

by Rosario Sisto

The territory of Massa Lubrense boasts countless natural wonders. Among these, the aquatic environment that surround its banks is especially important and it is safeguarded by the Marine Protected Area Punta Campanella. The M.AR.E. project was indeed started by the Marine Area with the aim of protecting the aquatic ecosystem of these territories.

This project aims to engage a number of young volunteers from all over the world in activities designed not only to help safeguard the local aquatic ecosystems, but also to help spread the knowledge of aquatic wonders and how keep them safe.

For this article we had the opportunity to interview one of this year’s volunteers: Pedro Ribeiro.

Let’s start with an introduction: what’s your name? How old are you? What country are you from?

My name is Pedro Ribeiro, I’m 26 and Portuguese. I was born in a small town in the inland of Portugal and I studied biology, including marine biology, at the University of Aveiro.

Tell us: how did you decide to take part in the M.A.R.E. project?

After getting my master degree last year, I looked for a job in Portugal, but I wasn’t able to find anything that suited me.

One day I discovered the M.A.R.E. project on Facebook and decided to take part in it. Above all, I wish to bring the knowledge I have gained through the project with me to Portugal.

Moreover, during my university studies I was unable to take part in an Erasmus project, so this experience allowed me to “fill that void”, in a sense.

Specific studies or preparations are required to participate in the M.A.R.E. project?

Actually, of the 10 volunteers currently participating in the project only 7 are experts in marine biology, while the other 3 have studied completely different subjects.

Despite this, as much as it may not be strictly necessary to possess specific knowledge to become a volunteer, it is still important for at least a part of the group to have studied marine biology, so as to support the others in the more demanding activities.

What are the main activities carried out by you volunteers?

project M.A.R.E.

During the first month we attend an Italian language course to facilitate communication.

The actual activities start during the summer, often with the assistance of other organizations.

The main activities take place in the Bay of Ieranto with the goal of protecting the biodiversity of the area, meaning its hundreds of aquatic species, both plant and animal. When boats happen to enter the bay – where it is not allowed to cruise or dock if your boat is engine-powered – we approach them by canoe to explain to the people aboard the park regulations and its goals, and so we invite them to go elsewhere.

At the same time we put effort into teaching people the importance of protecting this ecosystem, and we often organize kayak guided tours and snorkeling. In this way people can personally immerse themselves in the aquatic wonders of the territory and get to know it better.

Volunteers are also involved in the protection of sea turtles: we follow their footprints in the sand along the beaches, searching for potential nests. Once we find one, we protect it to make sure that the eggs will be able to hatch safely. In the meantime, we take this opportunity to explain the details of the whole process to the people who are on the beach.

Are there any difficulties in protecting a foreign territory?

Personally not. Adapting to this cultural context was fairly easy for me since, in my experience, Italy and Portugal are not very different from a socio-cultural point of view.

How does collaboration between young people from different countries and cultures influence the activities?

M.A.R.E. project

Some of the M.A.R.E. project activities also aim to create strong bonds between us, in order to make us feel united despite our cultural differences.

Among the more interesting and memorable activities are the “cultural evenings”: each of us is given a whole evening during which we can tell the others about our country and our culture. The goal of these meetings is to make us all feel closer. We have organized many similar events: Spanish, Greek, Croatian, and many others.


For giving us so much of his time and so much information, we sincerely thank Pedro Ribeiro.

We hope to have aroused interest in those who have read this article. We invite you to visit the territories of the Punta Campanella Marine Protected Area, so that you can personally admire these wonders and fully understand the importance of safeguarding them!

Marcialonga 2022

Marcialonga: the awaited event is back

Category:Events,Featured,Festivals,Outdoors Tags : 

On December 26, 2022, the 42nd edition of the Marcialonga will be held in Massa Lubrense.

The Marcialonga is an amateur free paced race through the streets of Massa Lubrense, discovering the most evocative corners of the area. It is an event organized by the parish community on the occasion of Christmas, which attracts hundreds of participants every year.

More then a competition, it is actually a pleasant walk through the hamlets and natural beauties of the place. For the residents, taking part in it is a way to spend cheerful time in company, in the spirit of the holidays.

The first edition was held on December 26, 1978, involving the entire town. From then on the Marcialonga became a real recurrence. In 2019, 2508 people of all ages took part in it, breaking all records. In 2020 and last year, due to the covid-19 pandemic, the event could not take place.

How to participate

Like every year, the event begins on St. Stephen day at 2 p.m. You can register on the same day from 9 a.m. until 10 minutes before the start at the stands in Piazza Vescovado (Vescovado Square), where the start is also scheduled. The rules of participation will be specified at the time of registration by handing over the regulations.

The route

Three refreshment points are included, two along the way and one at the end. It is possible to taste typical Christmas sweets, such as roccocò, panettone or fried zeppole prepared by the organizers, as well as the inevitable sausage sandwich.

From the square, the walk continues towards Via Roma, Via Rivo a Casa, via IV Novembre and via Nastro d’Oro, before reaching the crossroads for Santa Maria, the first refreshment point. The walk resumes along via Caselle, via Annunziata, arriving at the square of Santa Maria, where a second stop is planned. The longest part of the route then begins from via Padre Rocco, following the rotabile Massa Turro, deviating for via Mortella, crossing via Rachione, G. Marconi square and viale Filangieri. The event ends in Piazza Vescovado, where there will be one last refreshment, usually based on brioche and hot chocolate, served by the staff.

The first 100 drawn numbers will receive prizes offered by the local commercial activities. At the end of the walk, celebrations for young and old will continue.

As in the last edition, the event will be completely plastic free: respecting the environment only biodegradable disposable material will be used.

  • Marcialonga 2019
  • Marcialonga, i dolci natalizi, 2019
  • Marcialonga 2019
  • Marcialonga 2011
  • Marcialonga 2014, partenza
  • Marcialonga 2019
  • Marcialonga 2018

Every year many people work behind the scenes, with passion and dedication, to provide moments of joy and lightheartedness. Among the organizers there are those who make the desserts or other gastronomic delights, those who take care of setting up the stands or taking the registrations, but many more are the activities that make the event a success, which would be impossible without everyone’s cooperation!

Massa Lubrense: protagonist of cinema since the 1950s

Category:Blog,Culture Tags : 

There are numerous film productions that have as their backdrop the breathtaking landscapes and the extraordinary beauties of Massa Lubrense. From Paolo Sorrentino to Pierce Brosnan, Massa Lubrense appears in the masterpieces of both national and international cinema.

In this article, you will find the best films shot in Massa Lubrense.

The Hand of God (2021)

Written and directed by director Paolo Sorrentino, nominated for an Oscar 2022 in the Best International Film section, and a Golden Globe 2022 for Best Foreign Film. The coast of Massa Lubrense and the protected marine area of Punta Campanella are the backdrop to the Schisa family’s holidays. In the opening scene, there is a tribute to Eduardo De Filippo, with the shot of the Isca islet which, for decades, was the home of the well-known Italian actor and playwright. The mayor of the municipality of Massa Lubrense himself invited the director Paolo Sorrentino to personally appreciate the natural beauties that this place has to offer.

Love Is All You Need (2012)

A film directed by Danish director Susanne Brier. Between Sorrento and Massa Lubrense the love story blossoms between Philip (Priece Brosnan), an English citizen living in Denmark and Ida, a Danish hairdresser. To bind the two protagonists is the imminent marriage of their respective children which forces them to leave for Italy and which sees the beginning of their love and the perfect city for romance in the Sorrento peninsula.

Ex 2: Still Friends? (2011)

A film directed and co-written by Carlo Vanzina. Sequel to “Ex” (2009) by Fausto Brizzi. Also in this film, there are scenes shot in Massa Lubrense, such as the village of Annunziata and the historic Villa Murat. Vincenzo Salemme, in the role of Antonio, is an ex-pharmacist who invites a group of ex-friends to his villa in the Sorrento peninsula. During the party, ties are found that, by now, were believed to have been lost. Some scenes are also shot in the square of the village of Annunziata, with Capri in the background.

Neapel sehen und erben: See Naples and Die (1988)

Directed by Marco Serafini, it is a German film with Massa Lubrense as its setting. The story begins in Germany and then continues, during the holidays, in Italy: landscapes of the Amalfi coast alternate with those in the seaside village of Marina della Lobra. The movie didn’t obtain a wide diffusion in Italian cinema, so today, in addition to the testimonies of the residents, it is possible to find only a few clips of the film that clearly show glimpses of the seaside village of Marina della Lobra.

Husban and Wife (1952)

The film is divided into two episodes, both directed and interpreted by Eduardo de Filippo. Much of his film was shot right in the village of Annunziata. De Filippo himself wanted the inhabitants of Massa Lubrense to act as extras. The film represents two episodes about married life: in the first episode, that of a poor man made immobile by paralysis and, in the second, that of Gennarino who, tired of his wife, his spinster sister, and a stupid son, invents a love story with a neighbor of his.

Village of Annunziata

Starting from the 1950s with Eduardo de Filippo, the relationship between Massa Lubrense and cinema is still maintained thanks to numerous national and international directors who, choose the beauties of Massa Lubrense as the film set for their movies.

Regardless of the view, the protagonist of Monte San Costanzo is certainly the white church, pictured here from above. Therefore, from the top of the hill you can admire a 360degree view of the Lattari Mountains and the gulfs of Naples and Salerno that embrace the coast.

Firstly from the top of Monte di San Costanzo, we overlook the Bay of Ieranto, an enchanting rocky inlet. Moreover if you take a look from a precise perspective, the bay forms the suggestive shape of a heart.

The Bay of Ieranto is a property protected by the FAI (Italian Environment Fund) and can be reached on foot by a marked path. Starting from Nerano, the journey takes about 40 minutes. Alternatively, the bay can be reached directly from the sea, but only by using a canoe.

This is a photo of Marina del Cantone taken from above. It shows the beauty of the crystalline sea of the Lubrense coast. In the background, you can see the gulf of Salerno, up to Punta Licosa.

Marina di Puolo is located at the very beginning of the town of Massa Lubrense, coming from Sorrento. In summer, some of the local restaurants have their tables directly on the beach, giving customers a unique experience.

In this photo we can see the Marciano bridge, it is fascinating because it’s one of the most panoramic points of Massa Lubrense. In particular, walking on it you can admire the island of Capri in the Gulf of Naples.

In conclusion, in this last photo, there is part of the Sirenuse path, which is a trekking path between Sant’Agata sui due Golfi and Colli di Fontanelle. It is called this way because during the walk you can see in the background the islets of Li Galli, also called Sirenuse.
