The land of pebbles
In the province of Salerno, there is a village that is a real open-air art gallery. Walking through the alleys of Castelnuovo Cilento you will come across the works in pebbles by Guerino Galzerano, sculptures that adorn his house - called, in fact, the "house of pebbles" -, the castle garden and even the cemetery.
But the village, perched on a hill 280 meters above sea level, offers numerous other points of interest to those who are passionate about ancient and contemporary history. The town is dominated by the Talamo-Athenolfi Castle and its tower, built by the Lombards to control the valley. Go beyond the Castle and walk the staircase that will take you to the parish church of Santa Maria Maddalena, where the patron saint is celebrated with a great feast on July 22.
There is also space for outdoor sports. Do you want to discover Cilento by bike? Take the Via Silente, a 600-kilometre cycle tour through 16 stages to discover this area of Campania, starting from Castelnuovo. What are you waiting for to get on the saddle?
