THE ZIRO TOWER
The Tower is situated halfway between Amalfi and Ravello, a strategic position for keeping a lookout for approaching Saracens. This is the site of one of the bloodiest episodes: according to the legend, in the early 16th century Giovanna of Aragon was locked in the tower. She was guilty of having fallen in love with her servant after the death of her husband, Alfonso Piccolomini. The tower is famous for its Amazing Belvedere overlooking the whole gulf.
