Maratea, PZ, Italia


Maratea (PZ) is the only municipality in Basilicata, overlooking on the Tyrrhenian Sea. Its coast, set in a unique geographical and environmental setting, is varied with coves and caves, rocks and dry. Numerous and characteristic the coastal beaches, facing one of which emerges the Island of Santo Janni. Worthy of attention are the backdrops and the 131 marine and land caves, some of which have given back fossils and prehistoric finds.

For its picturesque coastal and mountain landscapes, and for the artistic and historical peculiarities, Maratea is one of the main tourist destinations in the region, so it is also known as the Pearl of the Tyrrhenian Sea. It is also called the city of the 44 churches for its many churches, chapels and monasteries, built in different epochs and styles, many of which represent a remarkable artistic and religious heritage.

The most famous monument of Maratea represents Christ the Redeemer after Resurrection in a different iconography from the traditional one. With its 22m high it is the tallest statue in Italy and the 66th highest in the world.
