View of the city of Amalfi Amalfi, Salerno, Italien with Mount Cerreto (1,315 m; 4,314 ft) in the background.

Amalfi was a maritime power with 70,000 residents until 1343 when an earthquake and subsequent tsunami caused most of the city and population to fall into the sea and destroyed the port. The tower of the Amalfi Cathedral (Duomo di Amalfi), built in 1208 and named Saint Andrews Cathedral, may be seen in the foreground.
