An itinerary for lovers of art, nature and good eating around Campania

Rich in natural and cultural treasures, Campania has been included in the UNESCO World Heritage Programme, on the basis of the principle that, certain parts of special areas have a particular significance, justifying their preservation as elements of the World Heritage Programme: the historical centre of Naples (1995); Caserta Palace, the Vanvitelli Acquaduct and the San Leucio complex (1997); the Archaeological areas of Pompei, Herculaneum and Torre Annunziata (1997); the Amalfi Coast (1997) and the Cilento and Vallo di Diano National Park with Paestum, Velia and the Chartreuse of Padula (1998).

The Cilento and Vallo di Diano National Park, is the result of the combination of both natural and human activity, so, re-enters under the category of evolutionary landscapes, because of the variety of changes caused by historical, social, economic, artistic and spiritual events, and its actual formation is ever adapting to its natural environment.

Santa Maria di Castellabate is a picturesque, fishing village, which has conserved its characteristics, intact, notwithstanding the ever-increasing tourism. The village is set in the centre of a large bay, confined by the two promontories, Punta Licosa and Punta Tresino. There are golden, sandy beaches, interrupted by rocky areas and all bathed by a sea, so clear, that it has been awarded the "European Blue Flag" for some years. In this natural semi-circle, we can find the original, fishermen's terraced cottages and the original village, including the Palazzo Belmonte, residence of princes, past and present and the Villa Matarazzo, originally a residence of local nobility, now home to exhibitions and cultural events. Among the numerous noble mansions along the esplanade, the imposing, Aragonese tower, dominates the scene, almost hostile toward the tiny "Madonnina" opposite, protectress of fishermen, a ceramic creation from the only laboratory still able to hand craft, following the craftsmanship of ancient tradition. Numerous restaurants and pizzerias, bars and pubs, are ready to satisfy lovers of good food while offering a relaxing, family atmosphere. Between tranquillity and entertainment, all year round, Santa Maria di Castellabate, represents the ideal destination, not only for a delightful holiday, but also as an ideal starting point for excursions into the discovery of the nature, culture and history of Cilento and Campania.

The mediaeval centre of Castellabate, set on a hill, at 278m. above sea level, dominates the entire bay. The impressive castle, around which the town developed, was founded in 1123 by the Benedictine abbot, Costabile Gentilcore, from Cava dei Tirreni, as a stronghold against the devastating Saracen incursions. The original nucleus has conserved its characteristic structure so we can travel back in time, with houses terracing along the narrow alleyways, between low archways and up and down the many stairways and small flower gardens and narrow, hidden lanes to be discovered. All streets lead to the piazza, the personification of "la dolce vita": an aperitif and a chat at the bar, then to sit on the wall which encloses this village social centre, the size of a pocket-handkerchief, and so await … the sunset! which, every evening, promises a unique, unrepeatable spectacular. Definitely, not to be forgotten… the view from the Belvedere, just below the castle: enjoy the sight of the entire bay set out before you, the coloured houses of Santa Maria, set along the sand and rocks of the beaches, San Marco and its ancient, Greek-Roman port and Lago, which, between Mediterranean greenery and golden beach, closes the gulf at its extremity. ...
