Cilento

 

Il Cilento

Cis Alentum

[On this side of Alento]

Within the Campania region lies Cilento, a subregion now stretching from Paestum up to the limit of Basilicata region (on the Sapri coast), while historic Cilento was basically including just the villages surrounding Monte della Stella.

The territory features around 130 kilometers of coast, small flat areas, hills… plenty of them; and then the mountains: Cervati, Gelbison, Bulgheria, Panormo, just to name the best known. Villages are scattered throughout Cilento, some with very few inhabitants, other that can be considered actual cities. And there are also archaeological sites: Paestum, Elea, Roccagloriosa, Civitella, Sacco Vecchia, and Roscigno, the Pompeii of the 1900s.

An ancient history is also to be found in the territory and soul of Cilento, one deeply linked to Basilian monasticism, which lived subtly even after the arrival of the Benedictines following the Lombards. Nowadays, evidence of either can be found in churches, names, venerated saints, and ancient architectures.

 

The National Park of Cilento, Alburni, and Vallo di Diano is one of the largest national parks in Italy.
