Minori

The origins of the name Minori come from its association in the past with the river that crosses it, La Rheggina, its ancient Latin name was Rheggina Minor. This name coincides with the name of the neighboring village Maiori, then known as Rheggina Maior. In time, it has come to be known simply as Minori. It is the site of well-preserved ruins of a Roman villa, which are open for public viewing.

Only a brief stretch of coastline divides Amalfi and Minori (the ancient ‘Regina Minor’); however, even this small town played its part along with the others in the history of the Maritime Republic of Amalfi.

Its origins lie with the picentines. Certainly the Romans must have come across this quiet part of coast, leaving us the remains of a first century roman villa, rediscovered at the beginning of the twentieth century.

The present church of Santa Trofimena, built during the eighteenth century in baroque style, replaced an older building. It has three aisles, with paintings by various authors decorating the walls. Meanwhile in the apse above the high altar a large panel showing the “Crucifixion” painted by Marco Pino da Siena can be seen. The remains of Santa Trofimena are kept in the church’s crypt.
