Marine Protected Area of Punta Campanella

Marine Protected Area of Punta Campanella

Between Massa Lubrense and Positano, the Marine Protected Area of Punta Campanella safeguards about 40 km of coast and shoreline. It abounds with flora and fauna – particularly birds and sea life. On the Punta Campanella Promontory, the Minerva Tower, built in 1335, served as a watchtower in the defense against pirate incursions along the Sorrentine Peninsula. The tower featured a bell (campanella) as an alert measure, thus bequeathing to the area its name.
