Rena d'a Carruba beach | Cersuta Maratea
Rena d’a Carrubba ( beach of carob tree) beach
Up to half of the last century near the beach there was the anchoring point for the boats that transported the plant strings (cd. "Libbani" these were ropes made with intertwined matweed ) processed and packaged locally and which were used for the cultivation of mussels.
Above this beach is the Cersuta cave (also called Providence cave), in which flows a fresh water spring.
The elders say that this cave was discovered by chance by a young pastor who, during a day of May 1843, out of boredom, threw stones towards the coast.
Immediately noticed all the inhabitants of Cersuta, which at the time had to go up to Acquafredda to get water, they were excited to see the beautiful interior of the cave, once freed from the dense green patch.
