Marina di Puolo is an hidden fishing village in a bay between Capo di Sorrento and Capo di Massa
Puolo has a very ancient past that has its roots since the time of the Roman Empire. The name Puolo derives from Pollio Felice, the first resident of the place. He was an influential Roman politician devoted to the philosophy of Epicureanism and, therefore, fascinated by the beauty of life and elegance. When he arrived in Puolo he found a desert beach surrounded by greenery, close to a blue sea, and he decided that his luxurious villa would rise there.
The magnificence of the villa is still witnessed today by remains scattered throughout the area.
Further ahead, enclosed in a natural inlet of the coast, we find Massa Lubrense. It takes its name from the ancient church above, dedidated to Our Lady of Lobra, protector of the site.
