Port of Marina Grande, perfectly demonstrated in our webcam, is an important harbor of the island of Capri, located north of the main city of Capri, at the base of Mount Solaro.
Many ferries with tourists from Naples and its outskirts come to Marina Grande harbor, from where the live broadcast is conducted. There is also a departure point to the Blue Grotto.
The port in our live camera is connected with the main Piazzetta square by a funicular, where it is convenient to get to Anacapri.
Next to the port in our online camera there is the largest Capri beach of Marina Grand Beach.
The most famous sea route is a boat trip between Marina Grande and Marina Piccola, which also has our webcam, passing the Faraglioni cliffs.
Marina Grande bay, which you see online, has a miniature square surrounded by typical Capri houses with terraces, balconies, open galleries and colored facades. Most often there are buildings of “Pompeii-red” color. There are also steep terraces houses with Mediterranean plants located on steep cliffs.
Every year, in September in Marina Grande with our live stream there is a festival in honor of Madonna della Libera.
It is interesting that Marina Piccola Bay, which is located on the southern coast of Capri, was the predecessor of Marina Grande in our online camera and served as a port during the reign of the ancient Roman emperors Augustus and Tiberius. Marina Grande was used as a fishing port, from which the ancient Romans built the Palazzo a Mare palace. Nowadays there are only ruins here.
The holy patron of the island of Capri is the bishop of Costanzo.The church of San Costanzo, named after him, is located between Marina Grande and the city of Anacapri.
Until 1928, ships moored to the coast in the bay of Marine Grande with our webcam. Later, the port turned into a seaside resort in our online broadcast.
The highlight of Marina Grande in our online camera is Mount Solaro – the highest peak of Capri (589 m). Nearby there is Fortino di Bruto – a blockhouse used in the battle between Britain and France at the beginning of the 19th century.
Mount Solaro is loved by painters. There are spectacular views of the Tyrrhenian Sea and the Gulf of Naples. It’s easy to reach the peak of Solaro. It is also convenient to get acquainted with the curious architectural monument of Eremo di Santa Maria a Cetrella and the Emperor Augustus monument.
