One of the streets that connect Marina Grande with the city consists of stone steps of medieval flavor, at the end of which you go through the arch of the charming door. Until the 15th century, the door of the Marina Grande was probably the only access to the city from the sea (north-west side).
The village is now a pretty cove with the characteristic fishing village, a narrow beach and bathing establishments. Today we still celebrate the feast of St.Anne on 26th July animated by the glow of fireworks that explode on the sea.
Here, on the first Sunday after the 26th July, the day of St.Anne, a characteristic folk festival was already celebrated in ancient times, which lasted all night. The boats arrived at the Marina to taste typical local dishes on board, but also on land the festival took place with folk songs and dances. Even today, the feast of St.Anne is celebrated here, animated by the glow and noise of fireworks that explode on the sea, attracting a large and participating audience.
The fishermen of the village of Marina Grande, belonging to the Confraternity of San Giovanni in Fontibus, built here the Church of St.Anne and dedicated it to the Saint.
Sorrento has always been a sought-after destination for exclusive tourism. There is a particular place, which testifies how much the peninsula since antiquity was chosen as a holiday destination: the Baths of Queen Giovanna, a fascinating uncontaminated basin, worthy of a queen.
It is a cliff located at the head of Sorrento, as well as one of the most important archaeological sites of the Sorrento peninsula. An enchanting place, where nature, sea and past blend together. The name, according to legend, is due to Queen Giovanna D'Angiò, sovereign of Naples.
It is a real natural pool surrounded by the cliff. The water is emerald-coloured and a natural arch makes you see the open sea from which it remains protected.
It is said that the Queen was vacationing in this area between 1371 and 1435 and that she took baths with her young lovers in this place because the natural shape of the basin surrounded by rocks kept her away from prying eyes.
The Baths of Queen Giovanna are a treasure trove of history and host the remains of an ancient Roman villa, whose name was "Villa Pollio Felice", which stood right on the promontory of the head of Sorrento. Today, of this structure dating back to the 1st century BC and reachable both from land and sea, only the ruins remain.
