Minuta is the hamlet which best preserves the imprint of its rich medieval past. It stands on a headland on the Dragone Valley. At its heart is a quiet square and it is bounded by the Church of the Annunciation (11th century). From here you can admire the Basilica of St.Eustachio, Ravello, Pogerola and the gorges of Atrani and Amalfi.

Everyday the fountain in the square offers refreshment to the mules whotravel back and forth along the ancient steps between Scala and Amalfi.
