Cilento

Cilento is a territory in which myth, history and landscapes meld. If the traveller arrives by boat, beaches, cliffs and caves will blend together with the green of the olive trees and the Mediterranean forest. If the traveller comes by train or by car, he will cross several villages wedged in river valleys or he will skirt the beaches of Paestum.
Still nowadays, myths and history melt together to give life and nobility to an extraordinary animated landscape: Palinuro and Enea, Ercole and the Vastasis (giants from the Mount Stella), the Archangel Michael and the Dolmen in San Mauro Cilento, the siren Leucosia buried in the proximity of Castellabate, according to the legend.

and the Dolmen in San Mauro Cilento, the siren Leucosia buried in the proximity of Castellabate, according to the legend.

The landscape in Cilento is mainly characterized by hills and mountains, but also by coastal plains and Vallo di Diano, a large inland plain. Once, there was a lake here, which is now completely dried out.
Mountain ridges come in succession: some present steep slopes, other rounded hills, all differently oriented and hydrographic catchments.
It is a territory of geographical contrasts: from the sandy coastlines to the almost 2.000 meters (1.899 m) of the Cervati, Monte Alburno (1.742 m) and Monte Gelbison (1.705 m). Monte Bulgheria (1.224 m) and Monte della Stella (1.130 m) in the coastal area make the atmosphere suggestive for the high and rocky coasts.
Cilento has a few catchments: the Alento, the Lambro and the Mingardo, the Solofrone, the Testene, the Fiumarella, the Bussento (in the Tyrrhenian area), the Calore, the Sammaro, magnificent cliffs such as Punta Tresino (in the proximity of Agropoli), all safeguarded by measures for the protection of biological resources. Other important elements are Punta Licosa, Ripe Rosse in Montecorice and Costa degli Infreschi.
