Meta di Sorrento: beautiful beaches and crystalline waters

     

    Meta is one of the many villages of the Sorrento Coast whose name derives from "miliarium", which means 'milestone'. On Roman roads, the milestones indicated the distance (in miles) from Rome.

    An important monument to visit is the pontifical basilica, Santa Maria del Lauro, which has been built between the IX and X centuries.

    Meta is positioned on a tuff rock of the Sorrento coast and extends towards the sea: tourists love the sandy beaches hidden among the rocks and the crystalline sea.

    The town started to develop in the XVII century and many other interesting buildings and churches were built.
