Sorrento

Sorrento in the webcam is a city located on the Sorrento Peninsula south of Naples, on a steep plateau near the Gulf of Naples in online broadcast.

The coast of Sorrento, as you can clearly see in live cam, is rocky and the beaches here are appropriate: many are artificially created and you can only go to the sea through wooden or stone platforms. For descent into the water there are comfortable stairs.

The Sorrento zone includes the city of Sorrento itself in the web camera, as well as the towns of Castellammare di Stabia, Sant’Agnello, Vico Equense, Massa Lubrense, Sant’Agata sui Due Golfi.

The main attraction of Sorrento, where the online broadcast is conducted from, is the Duomo Cathedral, located in the city center on Via Corso. The main building in the form of a cross was built in the 11th century, but during its existence the shrine has undergone many changes. The facade of the neo-Gothic religious monument, which tourists see today, appeared in the 18-19 centuries. Inside the temple is decorated with majolica, wood carvings and frescoes created by Neapolitan masters. There is a font in the Duomo Cathedral, in which the future poet Torquato Tasso was baptized in the middle of the 16th century. The special attention of the guests of Sorrento in the online camera is attracted by the bell tower, which keeps the memory of Byzantium, and the old ceramic clock installed on it.

Traveling around the Italian city in a webcam, you should definitely take a walk through the Old Town of Sorrento and reach Piazza San Antonio with the Basilica di San Antonio located on it.

Another interesting and popular Square is Tasso (Piazza Tasso). It houses a statue of the holy martyr Anthony, the patron saint of Sorrento, as well as a 19th-century monument to Torquato Tasso, the great Italian poet. In addition, the church of Maria del Carmine (Chiesa di S.Maria del Carmine), built in the 14th century, rises here.

Church of San Francesco (Chiesa di San Francesco) of the 18th century is unique for its picturesque flower galleries. From the miniature garden, which is located next to the church, offers a stunning view of the Gulf of Naples in the live webcam. And in its courtyard of the 13th century, the famous Sorrento Musical Summer festival is held every year.

An interesting fact: the famous Neapolitan song O Sole Mio was created by Sorrento musicians by order of Count Polenov, and the premiere of the song took place in St. Petersburg.
