A land to be discovered, dotted with small villages and fascinating bays yet to be explored, Cilento, a land of history, myth, art and culture, is this and much more. With its uncontaminated scenery, the crystalline and sunny sea, the medieval centers perched on the hills, the fragrant forests of herbs and its mountains, it offers a variety of inimitable landscapes. History and legend come together in this land of timeless charm, there are many tales of sirens and heroes who have given their name to some of its most enchanting places such as Palinuro and Marina di Camerota, also known as the "Pearl of Cilento", both originate from the myth of Palinuro, helmsman of the hero Aeneas, madly in love with the girl Kamaraton, beautiful as a goddess but with a heart of stone. The helmsman of Aeneas even went so far as to chase the image of him at the bottom of the sea, meeting his destiny. Guilty of unrequited love, Kamaraton was transformed into rock by Venus, the rock on which Camerota stands today, a perennial witness of an unfortunate love. Palinuro, reached the coasts, was mistaken for a sea monster by the local inhabitants and killed, the place where he died kept his name forever. To attract visitors to this land, however, it is not only the beauty of the sea and the charm of its legends, but also the richness of the archaeological and historical-artistic heritage which includes three Unesco sites: Velia-Elea, the temples of Paestum and the Charterhouse of Padula. Equally fascinating are the mountains and valleys where nature is preserved intact and wild. It is an alternation of splendid and varied landscapes rich in history and traditions and of endless limestone plains. The Cervati with its 1900 meters is the highest peak in Cilento and Campania. The Gelbison (from the Arabic Gebel-el-son means Mount of the Idol) is instead the fourth peak of Cilento (1,705 meters), on the top of which stands a sanctuary, that of the Madonna del Monte Sacro which stands on an ancient pagan settlement. Given the calcareous nature of the Cilento massifs, there are numerous karst phenomena that over the centuries have created and shaped deep gorges, springs with clear and fresh waters, sinkholes (the most spectacular is the Grava di Vesalo on Monte Cervati) and caves. Famous are those of Castelcivita (called del Diavolo) and those of Pertosa crossed by an underground river (Tanagro or Negro) and accessible by small boats. Also worth mentioning is the smaller, but no less fascinating, cave of San Michele (or dell’Angelo) in Sant’Angelo a Fasanella, surrounded by a suggestive mysticism. For those who love to explore, for those who understand the journey as a path of discovery first of all within themselves, finding traces of history and traditions that seem to have disappeared, Cilento offers a complex and multiple range of opportunities to live a unique experience. ..EXPERIENCE CILENTO!
