One of the most characteristic villages in Cilento
Pisciotta is perched on a hillside between the towns of Ascea and Centola Palinuro, in the verdant Cilento, Vallo di Diano and Alburni National Park. From the village, where some characteristic medieval buildings are still visible, you can reach the Marina hamlet via a long flight of steps. Here the beach has white pebbles. If you prefer fine sand, we recommend the Saline di Palinuro in Gabella. In contrada Valle di Marco, in Caprioli, you can admire what remains of the Palinuro Cenotaph, the monument erected by the local population in honour of the mythical helmsman of Aeneas.
If you are keen on trekking, you cannot miss the Castelluccio path, a rather challenging road of over 10 kilometres that leads to an altitude of over 700 metres and offers a breathtaking view of the Palinuro headland. The ancient route from Rodio to San Mauro la Bruca, also known as the path of the Knights of Malta, is 5 kilometres long and full of Mediterranean scrub, streams and wooden bridges.
