Fiordo Di Furore , Italy

Furore is a typical town on the Amalfi Coast, particularly known for its fjord. The latter consists of a striking recess of the sea, located on the way out of an overhanging valley. This deep cleft in the rock was originally formed by a usually dry stream, the Schiato, which swoops down from the edge of the plateau of Agerola. This location was anciently called Terra Furoris, probably due to the thunderous sea during storms, wedging itself inside the crack.
