Marina Grande of "Sancio Cattolico"

Beneath the majestic citadel of Terra Murata extends the main port of Procida – Marina Grande. Marina Grande, also referred to as the Marina ‘Sancio Cattolico’ (Sent’Co in dialect) offers visitors arriving by ferry at first sight, long narrow multi-storey houses in pastel colors with classic arches and external staircases typical of local architecture which can be seen around the island in many variations. Marina Grande is the social and economic center of Procida and here you will find most of the shops, offices and clubs, with many restaurants and bars – but without loosing its character as a fishing village. In fact, the fishing boats, and small businesses, form the backdrop for a lively and colorful Via Roma where every afternoon fresh fish is sold directly from the boats.

Marina Grande is a must for those wanting to buy handicrafts such as hand painted ceramics with original designs based on scenes from Procida, or who just want to have some fun or relax in one of the cozy bars offering great music and good wine. Also do not miss the small fashion and jewelry shops dotted along Via Roma where again you can admire the ability of the islanders to give a touch of individuality to their products.
