In the smallest municipality of Italy, an impressive amount of monumental beauty is concentrated, from the Collegiate Church of Santa Maria Maddalena to the churches of San Salvatore de Birecto, Santa Maria Immacolata, Santa Maria del Bando, Carmine, San Michele Fuori Le Mura . Also worth seeing is the Dragon Tower, the Grotto of Saints, and the Chapel of Saint Geltrude. Atrani close between the high pareteroccious and the sea, at the outlet of the Dragon Valley, offers the spectator a fantastic picture that perhaps has an echo in the theology of his name: Atranum dictum est ab obscuro. The country is crossed by the small dragon stream and has a sheltered and sheltered beach. The urban structure is typically medieval on the "borgo" system around the churches of S. Maddalena, S. Salvatore, S. Michele del Carmine, S. Rosalia, S. Maria del Bando. Architectural lines recall Arab culture of the alley and Casbah, for interchanges with the Mediterranean populations. Of particular interest is the small square in the form of an amphitheater overlooking the Church of the Birecto. Founded as Amalfi during the decadence of the Roman Empire, it was inhabited by the noblest part of the population of the republic, in which the Dogs were crowned and buried.
