Cilento is a mountainous region that occupies the entire southern Campania from the Gulf of Salerno to the Gulf of Policastro. If you go along the coast, ideally Battipaglia marks the beginning of the Cilento and after 100 km of long white beaches, cliffs, coves and picturesque villages blue-smerlando you reach Sapri, the last town of Cilento and Campania, on the border with Basilicata. Cilento is an area yet to be discovered, little interest from the tourists in recent decades and this remained largely untouched. Its dense forests, the villages perched on the mountains, picturesque marinas, the silence of the surrounding valleys are an invitation to discover the region and to return, as happens more and more often to those who visit for the first time ..
In 1991 a significant part of the Cilento has been transformed into the Natural Park and in 1997 UNESCO recognized the Cilento as a World Heritage Site, placing it in the network of biosphere reserves of the MAB-UNESCO (MAB = "Man and Biosphere" ). In the past the Cilento belonged to the historical region of Lucania, before moving to Campania. That his past is revealed by the names of some countries Cilento as Atena Lucana or Vallo della Lucania in addition to the dialect and cuisine. Just to mention two places, Paestum and Velia, to remember that the history of Cilento has its roots in past millennia and is lost in the story of myths and legends. The well-known legend, narrated by Homer in the Odyssey, Odysseus tied to the stake of his ship to hear the song of the Sirens, apparently referring to the coast of Punta Licosa. So how do you find the Cilento also in Virgil with the myth of the helmsman of Aeneas, Palinuro, fell right in the waters off the promontory that today bears his name. Historically, the first Greek settlements occurred between the seventh and sixth century. C. The Sibariti, population descendants of the Achaeans, founded Posidonia, which was later called Paestum in Roman times. Always around the sixth century. C. Focei, coming from 'Asia Minor founded Elea, where work to Xenophanes around 540 a. C. rose the Eleatics philosophy that could boast among its members Zeno, Parmenides, Melisso of Samo and Xenophanes the same.
The thread of history Cilento unfolds until today sewing events large and small. Tying the Roman period (Emperor Augustus made it a province to raise animals and grow food for the canteens Roman), medieval important facts (the Principality Lombard at Salerno, the advent of the Basilian monks and the Benedictines, the birth of the Barony with Sanseverino, their revolt to Capaccio in 4242 against Frederick II), until the 'epic of brigantinaggio and subsequent "Moti Cilentani" of 1828, with the insurgency against Francis II of Bourbon and his ministers. Traces, memories, monuments, culture, hiking trails linked to this rich history today are safeguarded thanks to the National Park of Cilento. And thanks to those important international awards achieved recently. The first was in June 1997, which saw the inclusion of Cilento in the prestigious network of Biosphere Reserves of the MAB-UNESCO (where Mab stands for "Man and Biosphere"): all over the planet (in 80 states) are counted about 350 of these special protected areas, which serve to protect biodiversity and promote development compatible with nature and culture. So the Park of Cilento Today, in addition to its precious natural habitats, can in most safeguard those scenarios right enshrined in the history of 'man and imbued with its traditions: villages and ancient paths, although in "patchy" in a more wide to defend and promote. The park, in fact, if young, is seen by many as a tool of development and hope Cilento. Second award in 1998 with its inclusion-along with the archaeological sites of Paestum and Velia- in the list of world heritage. This consecration reinforces the value of this "living landscape", recognizing the role of the civilizations that have inhabited and frequented over the millennia. "As natural species the peoples found in these places contacts, intersections and mergers, the enrichment of the genetic heritage," says the candidacy of the Park, "in the Cilento is the meeting place between sea and mountains, west and East, northern and African cultures.
