The oldest village of Procida
Characteristic, suggestive and romantic, Marina Corricella is the most ancient fishing village of Procida. Arranged as an amphitheater on the sea and surrounded by the nets lying on the quay, this small fishing village is a quiet and seductive refuge for those who prefer relaxing vacations. The smell of the sea, the characteristic narrow streets, the unique architecture and the total absence of vehicles make Corricella a world apart.
The seventeenth-century harbour is famous and appreciated for its peculiar architecture: here it is possible to see an interlacement of arches, domes, windows, stairs, loggias, stairs and multicoloured facades which give life to a building complex more unique than rare for its shapes, colors and arrangement of the houses.
As it is easy to imagine, Marina Corricella can be reached only by sea or through four stairways that draw different itineraries. The Gradinata del Pennino, accessible from Via San Rocco, and the Gradinata Scura, accessible instead from Via M. Scotti, represent the main route to reach the village. This route, which tends to bifurcate creating a barrel-shaped stretch with junctions for the houses situated on different levels, gives the idea of violating private property more than once. From the extremities of the small port it is instead possible to go up again the suburb going through other two steps, one of which ends near the Sanctuary of Santa Maria delle Grazie. The other, situated under the belvedere of Callìa, is the ideal place to admire the island of Capri and the promontory of Terra Murata.
Finally, an obligatory stop for lovers of gastronomic and cinematographic tourism is the Bar Graziella, set of numerous cinematographic productions.
Marina di Corricella can be reached on foot crossing the streets of the center or by bus and taxi:
Bus: Line C2 of the EAVBUS which reaches San Rocco. From here you will then have to continue for a short distance on foot.
On Foot: If you are on foot instead you will have to walk and cross the narrow streets of Via Vittorio Emanuele, Via Principe Umberto, Piazza dei Martiri and San Rocco or from the other narrow street via Bernardi Scotti Galletta. The distance from Via Roma is about 1 km and, if the day is not particularly hot, you can choose to go on foot.
Taxi and Micro Taxi: From the port you can choose this option to easily reach Marina di Corricella.
Marina Corricella can only be reached by sea or through four steps that draw different itineraries. The Gradinata del Pennino, accessible from Via San Rocco, and the Gradinata Scura, accessible from Via M. Scotti, represent the main route to get to the village.
The Corricella, perhaps due to its natural conformation, has been chosen by various directors as a natural setting. Among the many, Procidani remember with great fervor the film that immortalized the island of Procida par excellence: Il Postino by Massimo Troisi.
