Minori

3.9
Minori is a town and a comune in the province of Salerno in the Campania region of southwestern Italy, situated on the Amalfi Coast. It is the site of the well-preserved ruins of a Roman villa, which are open for public viewing.EtymologyThe origin of the name, Minori, comes from its association in the past with the river that courses through it, La Rheggina. The ancient Latin name for the town was, Rheggina Minor. This name coincided with the ancient name of the neighboring village, Maiori, then known as Rheggina Maior, because of the same association. Eventually, the names of both towns have become abbreviated, Rheggina Minor being simply known as Minori.Main sightsBasilica di Santa Trofimena - Saint Trofimena was a young Sicilian martyr. She is known by several names, and possibly may be related to a myth about the siren Parthenope. Legend says that her body was placed in an urn and thrown into the sea. The urn was carried by currents until it washed onto the beach at Minori. The people who found it used a team of small white heifers to carry it to the location where locals built temple to honour the martyr.Roman Maritime Archeological Villa - It was most probably built in the first century BC at sea level. One of the best preserved elements of the villa is the large hall with tunnel vaults, stucco, and the remains of frescos.Saint Nicola Convent - The church most probably dates back to the end of the eleventh century or the beginning of the twelfth century.
