Cetara is a pleasant small town of the Amalfi Coast, near Salerno, about 5 km from the Vietri Sul Mare highway exit (A3 Napoli-Salerno) and 40 min. from Capodichino airport (of Naples).
Connected for centuries to the economic and spiritual events of the nearby Benedictine Abbey of Cava de’ Tirreni, Cetara is an active fishing harbour: its name comes from “Cetaria” (tuna-fishing nets) or “Cetari” (big fishes sellers) . The whole economy is mostly about marine traditions: the Cetara’s fishing fleet is one of the most active in the Mediterranean sea, for bot fishing of tuna and anchovies.
One of the traditional food is the “colatura of anchovies”, an amber-coloured juice coming from the anchovies which is used to dress pasta and other foods, made by expert hands according to an ancient and secret procedure.
Last but not least, the procession in honour of St. Peter (Patron of the town, celebrated on June 29th) is a very interesting and amazing event, during which the statue of Saint Peter is brought, accompanied by traditional music, up to the beach, and thousands of people come from the nearby towns to see the famous fireworks on the sea.
