Located not far from Positano, in the charming bay of Conca dei Marini, the Emerald Grotto is one of the gems of the Amalfi Coast. Well-known in the 19th century, the grotto was somehow forgotten and only re-discovered in 1932 by a local sailor, Luigi Buonocore.
The grotto was named "Emerald" for the incredible colors that filter from an underground opening and fill the cave with intense nuances of green. The inside of the cavern is filled with stalagmites, stalactites and strange "work of arts" created by time and nature.
The Emerald Grotto combines the characteristic of an inland grotto with those of a marine grotto. Until 6000 years ago (yesterday, in the geological timeline) the grotto was not submerged, and the slow incessant dripping of drops of water created the stalactites and the stalagmites.
