A webcam overlooking Castellabate beach in Italy shows one of the most popular recreation areas in the city. The settlement itself in the online camera is a successful combination of medieval charm, the enchanting beauty of nature and excellent opportunities for a relaxing holiday by the sea in a live broadcast.
Castellabate, where the online broadcast is coming from, is a member of the association of “Most Beautiful Small Towns in Italy“. The unique atmosphere of southern Italy reigns here: the bright warm sun, the turquoise expanse of the sea, the landscapes awarded by the artist’s brush, the old streets with buildings erected several centuries ago, nice cafes and restaurants.
Castellabate online is located on the coast of Campania, by the azure Tyrrhenian Sea in the web camera, on the slopes of a hill, at the foot of which stretches a 19-kilometer coastal strip.
The Italian Castellabate in the online live camera consists of two parts: a medieval borgo, located on a hill, and the coastal area of Santa Maria with beautiful sandy beaches, alternating with cozy bays protected by steep cliffs. Towers rise along the coast, once warning of the approach of pirates, and the palaces of noble Neapolitan families are also located.
Santa Maria is the best place for a relaxing beach holiday with the opportunity to stroll along the beautiful promenade, visit shops and souvenir shops, sit in cozy cafes and drink a cup of aromatic coffee or enjoy ice cream. It is a pleasure to enjoy traditional Italian cuisine and freshly caught seafood dishes in local restaurants.
The branded product in Castellabate, where the live broadcast is conducted from, is a fig grown only in this territory. It is dried with bay leaves and parsley seeds and sold strung on skewers or dipped in chocolate to make delicate and healthy candies.
In the evenings, the promenade of Santa Maria di Castellabate is lit up with illuminations, city holidays are often held here, such as the beer festival or St. Anthony’s Day with colorful fireworks over the sea.
Not far from Santa Maria there is the cozy harbor of San Marco with a marina. Port of San Marco is often used with the prefix “di Castellabate”. A few minutes walk from it there is a natural park with dense vegetation and paths for walking.
In the upper, historical part of Castellabate, in the live cam there is the Castle for the Abbot (Castello dell’Abate) or Castello Abbe, which gave the name to the city in the online broadcast. The fortress was built in 1123 by the abbot Constabilis, the patron saint of Castellabate. It defended the city in a live broadcast from the attacks of the Saracens. At first, the abbot called it “Castle of the Angel”, but later the citadel was renamed in honor of Constabilis. The fortress has been perfectly preserved to this day, and today the city museum with ancient artifacts, a Viking hall and underground passages between the castle towers operates in its premises.
Near Castello Abbate there is an observation deck that offers a breathtaking view of the turquoise Tyrrhenian Sea, the Gulf of Salerno, the islands of Ischia and Capri.
The old town of Castellabate is included in the Cilento National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is interesting to walk along it through the labyrinth of narrow cobbled streets with houses and palaces of the 16th – 17th centuries, and admire the beautiful frescoes in the active Basilica of St. Giulia of the 16th century.
Another attraction of Castellabate, where the live broadcast is coming from, is the Principessa restaurant, located on the panoramic terrace. It was here that the popular Italian film “Welcome to the South” was filmed, and the bar opposite served as a post office – the place of work of the main characters.
