Tourist information

Greater fraction of the municipality of Massa Lubrense and located on the end of the Sorrento peninsula opposite the island of Capri, between the gulf of Naples and Salerno, Sant'Agata sui Due Golfi is a famous holiday resort, thanks to the beautiful landscapes that surround it, the quality of the sea and the mild climate.

Sant’Agata sui due Golfi is located near the Amalfi coast, not far from Massa Lubrense, Sorrento, Positano, Vico Equense and Castellammare di Stabia, and about 60 from both Naples and Salerno.

The necropolis located on the north wall of the hill and the traces of ancient communication routes, testify that these territories were inhabited in the past by Etruscans, Greeks and Romans.

What see

The church of Santa Marie delle Grazie, dating back to 1745, deserves to be visited.

Inside there is a statue of Sant’Agata, some 16th century paintings and the altar covered with marble and mother of pearl inserts, made by Dionisio Lazzari.

At the top of the hill "Il Deserto" is the homonymous monumental complex, comprising a Benedictine female monastery, built on top of an ancient temple dedicated to the worship of mermaids, from which you can admire a beautiful panorama of the two gulfs.

Like any location on the Sorrento peninsula, Sant’Agata also boasts an excellent gastronomic tradition.

The origins of the local gastronomic tradition date back to the early twentieth century, when the Neapolitan poet Salvatore Di Giacomo and the English writer George Norman Douglas, with their literary works, made Sant'Agata and other towns in the area famous, including Capri and Sorrento.
