Maiori travel guide :.
Maiori was one of the most developed towns of the Amalfi Coast at the time of "The
Republic of Amalfi". The economic strength of Maiori largely
came from the town's strong fleet of ships, and wide harbor.
Commerce and production of goods flourished until the 1268, the
year of the Pisani invasion. The Pisani attacked all the main towns
along the Amalfi Coast that year.
The town of Maiori has fallen, and risen again, many times in its
history. In 1348 the people of Maiori suffered a plague, but the
town recovered, and only a few years later Maiori was a wealthy
producer of silks, and wool, which were shipped all over the Mediterranean
Sea. Hard times came again for Maiori in 1528, when the Spanish
fought for dominance of the Amalfi Coast. Shortly after, the people
of Maiori suffered another battle for dominance by the French.
Despite it's difficult history, nowadays, Maiori is a characteristic
seaside resort. Maiori offers everything it takes for its guests
to enjoy a relaxing, and pleasurable holiday on the Amalfi Coast.
