The Province of Salerno, after that of Naples, is the second in terms of number of inhabitants, dimensions and economic activities. Its center has always been Amalfi, since the times when, in the Middle Ages, the Republic of Amalfi dominated the Mediterranean with its trade in spices and precious fabrics with southern-Italy, and the southern Mediterranean from Tunisia to Turkey.
These same sailors are the ones who shaped the characteristic landscape of the Amalfi Coast, with its crops on the cliffs born thanks to the many dry stone walls built to contain the terraces where the cultivation of vines, olive trees, citrus fruits and vegetables gradually took place of oak and chestnut forests.
