Cilento National Park

Located in the Province of Salerno in Campania, the Cilento National Park is the little-know paradise where the sea meets the mountains. This spectacular combination of landscapes was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1998. It is the second largest national park in Italy and is part of the Cilento’s territory. On the high coast, the flysch stands out with its dense stratification of the rocks which sometimes take on peculiar shapes and colours.

The Cilento National Park is composed of a rich heritage with numerous medieval settlements, and as well as cultural attractions, amongst which the most note-worthy include Paestum, Velia and the Certosa of Padula.

Thanks to the progressive enrichment of the ecosystem of the park, the territory houses many animal species, such as the golden eagle, wolves, foxes, martens, badgers, weasels. The environment and the flora are also expanding, with approximately three thousand plant species having been found there.

This is the perfect place for hiking and climbing lovers.
