It is the most famous location in the Cilento region. Perhaps because of the legend to which it owes its name: Palinurus was Ulysses' faithful companion, buried in the shadow of the headland, the patron deity of ancient sailors. Perhaps it is because of the extraordinary beauty of the place: its coastline is made up of cliffs, a parade of caves and coves, and seabeds full of life. The destination of a pleasant walk is the Antiquarium, which houses archaeological finds from a Greek settlement and necropolis dating back to the 6th century BC, as well as various materials recovered from ancient shipwrecks. It is located at the far end of the village, above the Ficucella beach, and is reached at the end of a flight of steps that descends in front of the church, among espaliers of prickly pears.
