Furore is a town and comune in the province of Salerno in the Campania region of south-western Italy. Furore is located on the Amalfi Coast.

Geography[edit]

The municipality of Furore expands from sea level, where there is the hamlet of Fiordo di Furore, and a little civil parish partly belonging to Praiano named Marina di Praia, up to Agerola (550 meters above sea level). The village is subdivided into 3 districts (contrade): Cicala (Sant'Elia), Ciuccio (Santo Jaco) and Gatta (Sant'Agnelo).

Main sights[edit]

  • the so-called fiordo di Furore, in fact a ria created by the Schiato torrent which flows here from Agerola.
  • Church of Sant'Elia
  • Saint Giacomo Church, with a collection of religious iconography of female Saints.[3]
  • Saint Michele Church, with Gothic elements, such as the sharp arch, coexisting with Romanesque figurative decorations.[3]
  • The open-air museum of Murals, along the road, painted on the walls of the houses of Furore.
