  Lemon Groves Terraced into the Mountains
by deecat

In the village of Maiori, with its traditional whitewashed "cube-shaped stone houses", these homes seem to march up the mountainside until they meet the lemon groves that are grown in a terraced set up.

They use every inch of land, and I don't know how, but the lemons are the largest I have ever seen anywhere. But, what is really neat is the finished product: renowned Limoncello Liqueur!

At the town's end, you see a modern lugomare that is decorated with tile-lined fountains; there is a beach below. Along the promenade, you will see the colorful boats just waiting for the fishermen.

This is such a quaint, quiet village, but it is one that I am certainly glad I experienced.
