Cats from Corricella {Procida}

procida italy

Procida is the smallest of the Flegrean Islands off the coast of Naples in southern Italy. Unlike Capri and Ischia, it is still largely untouched by tourists.

With its quaint narrow streets, its pink and yellow houses and its idyllic cliff, the port town of Corricella on Procida doesn't just look like a movie set, it was one too – some of the most famous movies that were filmed here are Il Postino (1994) and The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999).

Besides being an island of cinema, Procida is also an island of cats. They love patrolling the neighborhood early in the mornings when the streets are still quiet. In the harbor of the fishing village Corricella, they patiently wait for the fishermen to share their morning catch.

For the rest of the day, they snooze in the shade.

When they're hungry again, the cats try out their luck in the seafront restaurants, attempting to snatch some fish or sea fruit from unsuspecting tourists.

  13. I am a total cat lady, so am always on the look out for cats. When I was in greece working there on a trip, there were so many cats and kittens, and I wanted to take them all home! It's hard to resist. #pocolo
