This area has its frist development at the end of the middle age, on the Roman ruins, there were built several villas of great importance to the north of the village with panoramic views of the bay, the Amalfi coast and Capri. Well-exposed to the sunlight, these villas were owned by richest merchants who used to figure out they trades with all the Mediterranean harbours and wanted to make a show of their claim in society 'with paintings, stucco, tile floors, frescoes, all done by local workers. In 900 many of these magnificent homes were abandoned in consequences due to geopolitical change and later with the explosion of the tourism industry transformed to meet the needs of economic exploitation without taking account of their value town.
