Earthly Paradise

People from Cilento


The Cilento, that doesn't love to feel province of Salerno, is almost entirely contained in the "National Park of the Cilento" from 1997 protected by the Unesco. 180.000 hectares of ground, the second park of Italy. Yet, cut out of the routs of the highways, away from historical or artistic city, alive of an ancient isolation, medieval. The Cilento and its National Park are an unknown earth, also to the Italian, closed by mountains disseminated of caves and covered before oil you and then, meter after meter, from castagneti and pineti.
