The far south of Campania is a land of a thousand faces, embracing a wide variety of landscapes and cultures, from the forests of the Alburni Mountains, clad in dense mediterranean vegetation, to the extraordinary rocky walls of the Gulf of Policastro, plunging straight into the crystalline Tyrrhenian Sea.
The Cilento and Vallo di Diano National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site, includes extraordinary towns such as Castellabate and Agropoli, unique archaeological sites like Paestum and Elea-Velia, all set in an incredible natural context characterised by countless different species of native plants and wildlife of all kinds, from golden eagle and rock partridge to Apennine hare.
Cilento is home to the region’s greatest variety of Slow Food presidiums, as well as the secret of longevity. Curious to know more? All you have to do is set off on your journey of discovery in a little-known and wild area of Campania.
