The Spanish built Torre di Grado is part of the sighting towers erected in order to defend the Tyrrhenian coastline (from 1503 to 1688).

Just below the tower there is a lovely bay to relax, have a bath and enjoy the sun. To reach the bay, from Piazza San Gennaro in Praiano, you should take the Via Massa underneath and keep the left after about 100 metres. After the Hotel Bellavista, on the right side you will see a flight of steps that goes down to Torre di Grado, close to the Gavitella Beach.
