Furore is also known as “the town that doesn’t exist”, for its urban layout characterized by scattered villages surrounded by terraced vineyards.
The town’s name derives from the praia, or beach, from the Latin word pelagium, meaning “open sea.” Praiano had an important local silk industry, however, it disappeared during the 19th century. With the discovery of corals in the vicinity around the 1800s, Praiano’s economy was revitalized, mainly focusing on the fishing and tourism industries ever since. One popular attraction is the Church of San Luca Evangelista, dating back to 1123. Another attraction is the Church of San Giovanni Battista, featuring a well-preserved maiolica tiled floor, dating back to the 12th-13th centuries.

Amalfi is the town that gives its name to the coast, is situated at the mouth of the Valle dei Mulini.
