The center of Maratea is an enchanting village where you can take quiet walks, perhaps stopping every now and then to admire the various artisan shops or to taste the local cuisine in the many typical restaurants.
The heart of the city is Palazzo de Lieto, an elegant eighteenth-century building that often hosts exhibitions and cultural events. The Fontana della Sirena is also well known, a refined stone fountain considered one of the most famous (and romantic!) destinations in the city.
It's impossible to go to Maratea without taking at least a walk on Monte San Biagio, from whose top you can enjoy a breathtaking view. Up there you'll find several points of interest, including the fascinating ruins of Maratea Vecchia (Old Maratea), the Basilica of San Biagio and above all the famous statue of Christ the Redeemer, made by the sculptor Bruno Innocenti in 1965, which with its 21 meters high has been watching over on Maratea for decades.
Marina di Maratea also has a small cave near the sea, Grotta delle Meraviglie, Marvel Cave, which definitely deserves the name. Inside, in fact, there are spectacular stalactites and stalagmites with incredible shapes and fascinating transparencies. The cave is not very large and can be easily visited on foot as it is shallow and well equipped with stairs and walkways.
