Transfer to the Emerald cave through the fjord of Furore. Located in the town of Conca dei Marini, the Emerald cave was discovered by the fisherman Luigi Buonocore in 1932. The sunlight reflects into the opening of the cave making its water glimmer like diamonds. It is about 24 m. high and has many stalactites and stalagmites , which in some parts are joined together to form massive columns.

The 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. It is home to an underwater nativity scene, made ceramics artisan from nearby Vietri in 1956.
