Maiori is a town and comune on the Amalfi coast in the province of Salerno . It has been a popular tourist resort since Roman times, with the longest unbroken stretch of beach on the Amalfi coastline.HistoryThe origins of the town are unclear but the original name of the town was Reghinna Maior, in contrast to the neighbouring town, Minori, Reghinna Minor. All places along the coast were formed by alternating conquerors - such as the Etruscans or the Romans.Between 830 and 840, the places of the coast united to form a confederation of Amalfi States. In this Amalfi Sea Republic, the places between Lettere and Tramonti and between Cetara and Positano, along with the island of Capri, were united; and their inhabitants were all called Amalfitaner. At that time, each city retained its own name and administrative autonomy, but had a specific role in this federation.Later it became part of the Principality of Salerno, and then of the Kingdom of Naples, of which it followed the history until the 19th century.Main sightsCollegiate Church of Santa Maria a Mare. The colourful maiolica tiled dome looks like Maiori's crown, whose jewels are treasured inside the Sacred Art Museum just next to the Church.Santa Maria de Olearia in Maiori. The ruins of the XI Benedictine Abbey just above Maiori, is a great way to enjoy the most ancient part of town.Falerzio Mount and Avvocata Church.
