When it comes to Procida it is difficult not to say Corricella, it is an ancient fishing village and even today it is easy to meet local people who work near the fishing nets .
Loved by writers, poets and artists, it was chosen by Massimo Troisi for the unforgettable film Il postino, there is also a small square in his name.
The small village is characterized by its colorful houses clearly visible from afar, legend has it that the pastel colors of the houses (pink, yellow, white, blue, orange) were used by local fishermen to recognize their homes from the sea.
The port of Corricella can be reached only from the sea orby stairs, no cars, motorcycles or bicycles. There are two routes to reach the village, the first route (recommended for those coming down from Terra Murata) located near Piazza dei Martiri follows a steep descent known as San Rocco , near the stairs you can find your way around with a small ice cream shop, tobacconist’s or bar.
The second path (Callìa) includes about 150 steps, the particularity is that before going down you can admire a beautiful panorama on Corricella and Terra Murata and on days with the right visibility also Capri.
