About the Emerald Grotto…
 
Slowly excavated into the rock, deep up to the bowels of the Conca dei Marini crag, near Amalfi, is the Emerald Grotto (Grotta dello Smeraldo in italian), a real natural spectacle that enlightens the sight of the visitors. Discovered in 1932 by a local fisherman, it took the name of the precious gem for its characteristic coloration reflected by the waters that goes from cobalt blue to emerald green, due to the sunlight that filters trough an 12-meters entrance. The wide rocky cave presents a scenography naturally created by the marine erosion with stalactites and stalagmites. Luminous and iridescent it hides an underwater nativity scene made with ceramic from Vietri sul Mare.
