All of Corricella's charm is evident from its name, which derives from the greek "coros callos," meaning beautiful hamlet, and the village is like a box of colored stones that are reflected into the sea. Permanently closed to traffic, it is the oldest part of the island of Procida and is characterized by a silence and a delicate sweet scent of the sea. Arches, balconies, gates and steps of the typically characteristic houses intersect together, with only the pastel colors of yellow, pink and various shades of blue delineating the architectural boundaries. The bay of Coriccella was chosen as the set of many films, such as Il Postino, about Pablo Neruda. This old fishing village is also the ideal place to sample the excellent fresh fish specialties and traditional dishes of the island in one of the villages many exclusives restaurants.
