Castrocucco of  Maratea 

Castrocucco. a nature's masterpiece

At the extreme south of the coast of Maratea, on the border with Calabria, the territory of Castrocucco is, to some historians, the site of the ancient Greek city of Blanda from which would originate the current Maratea.

Castrocucco is characterized by the presence of three important points of interest include La Secca, the Gnola beach, the Castrocucco Castle.

Just the crumbling remains of the castle belonging to the Barons Labanca and the palace "annex" directly on the beach in La Secca, are witness to the only feud on the territory of Maratea.

la Secca

Secca di Castrocucco is a stretch of approximately 1 km of the southern coast of Maratea but also named a small but beautiful cove with a very shallow water adjacent to an old baronial building.
The Secca is the realm of snorkeling for the presence of vegetation and a very rich marine life favored by shallow water.
Reachable only via sea and on foot or by car, it is without a doubt one of the most fascinating locations throughout the coast of Maratea, equipped with facilities and catering services.


Castrocucco can be reached by car or public transport of bus lines from Maratea to and from Praja a Mare (for timetables see the public transport page of Maratea).
