  • The monumental complex of Santa Maria de Olearia, is certainly to be considered one of the most important Benedictine monastic settlements of the whole territory. Located along the coast which connects the promontory of Capo d'orso with Maiori, the monument, precious testimony of art and architecture of the early middle ages. Of the ancient monastic complex overlapping three churches remain today, while the remaining building was totally transformed for use as civilian housing. Proceeds from the shade of a large natural rock cave, at the side of the road which connects Salerno with Amalfi. the paintings that decorate however constitute the matter of interest. The first environment, the so-called crypt, is a little less than ten meters from the road surface and can be accessed today through a double flight of stairs. This apparently is the first nucleus of the Hermitage. In the Middle you will recognize the images of Christ blessing, dressed in a white robe and a golden cloak, bearing in his left hand he veiled a roll. The head and upper torso were destroyed. On either side are two angels who wear purple robes and the loros Byzantines with precious stones. The Angel on the right is relatively well preserved. In the southern apse shows three headless figures. From a stylistic point of view these frescoes, traced back to the medieval culture.
