Praiano, originally known as Plagium or Pelagianum, was once
the holiday resort of the Amalfitan Doges.
Today it may lack the splendour of Medieval nobility, but it has
maintained its timeless charm as a small fishing village perched on
the cliffs between its more famous neighbours, Positano and Amalfi.
It is an alternative to the famous sisters. The rugged peaked
coast allowing only those who know or discover the little streams,
the coves of the water between olives, pines, Bougainvillea
The most important building today in Praiano is the Church of
Saint Luke the Evangelist, which also holds this saint's remains
and boasts fine paintings by Giovanni Bernardo Lama (including
the Madonna with Child) and a silver bust of the saint, dated 1694.
