Vibonati – Villammare
Villammare, the seaside hamlet of Vibonati, has built in the early twentieth century when the few fishermen’s houses of the ancient fishing village built around the church of Santa Maria di Portosalvo and protected by the 16th century coastal tower were joined by the summer homes of wealthy families from the surrounding hills.
Small fishermen’s houses are alternated with pretty 20th-century buildings along the tree lined seafront, which fades into the wide beaches that stretch to the east and to the west of the town. Close to the sea village, accessible by a wide road, lies the medieval village of Vibonati, with streets paved with stone and beautiful old houses lining them.
At the highest point of the village, we find the Mother Church of Sant’Antonio Abate, dating back to the 17th century, with a courtyard that is supported by the pillars of the portico blackened by time, called Tirone.
