Voisinage:

Maiori was built in the 9th century by the Prince of Salerno Sicardo with the name of « Rheginna Major » to distinguish itself from the neighboring city of Minori, called « Rheginna Minor ». They both lied that name until the beginning of the Swabian name, and subsequently lost the word « Rheginna », which derived from the name of two rivers, one larger and one smaller, which also subsequently continued to be called Regina and Reginella , while over the centuries the two cities took the names of Maiuri and Minuri. A possession of Amalfi and part of its history, Maiori resisted the surrender of Amalfi to the Normans for some time. It was sacked in 1268 by the Pisans, rivals of the Amalfi Republic. It had a thriving merchant marine and was able to build large-scale ships on its long and wide beach. Maiori, decimated by the plague of 1656 which reduced the population to 700 people, in 1852 had 4891 inhabitants. On 26 October 1954 the central area of ​​the town suffered the flood and the coverage of the Reginna Maior exploded causing the collapse of numerous adjacent houses. As Roberto Pane wrote, the storm has served as a pretext for a massive speculation of « second homes », instead of constituting a proper hydrogeological arrangement in the area. The town lies in a beautiful plain, bordering north with Tramonti, east with Minori, west with the Arsiccia valley and at noon with the sea. It was surrounded and defended by walls and towers, which were built starting from the 9th century and whose remains can be seen in many parts of the town. On the Ponticchio hill are the ruins of the castle of San Nicola which, built under Piccolomini in 1468, cost the city about 6000 ducats. It has the shape of an irregular polygon with eight towers and occupies an area of ​​over 7500 square meters.
