Stage 4 : Trentinara / Felitto

On paper, today’s kilometers are not many, but the route is scenic and, above all, rich in points of interest, so take it easy. Starting from Trentinara, perched on a rocky ridge overlooking the underlying Sele Valley, the day’s exploration begins. Precisely due to its position (606 m above sea level), Trentinara is known as the “terrace of Cilento.” From the famous panoramic square at the top of the village, your gaze can sweep from the Amalfi Coast to Punta Campanella and Capri. If, by your choice, you decide to stay a night in the village, visit the historic center and the monumental portals dating back to the 18th and 19th centuries, but at dusk, return to the square: you can enjoy one of the most beautiful sunsets that the Via Silente will offer you. Passing through here in the second week of August will also give you the opportunity to participate in the characteristic “Festa del Pane” (Bread Festival): scents, flavors, and sounds will mingle through the alleys of the village; the excellent local wine will do the rest, and you may decide it’s worth staying a few more days. From the square in Trentinara, the zip line “Cilento in Volo” starts. If you have time, an extraordinary experience not to be missed.

From Trentinara to Magliano Vetere, you will cycle on a slightly undulating path but without abrupt changes in slope. Along the SP13b, you will see on your left the settlement of Magliano Nuovo. Continuing, you will stop in Stio, home to the Trotta Museum, the artisan workshop of the luthiers of Cilento, the photography museum, and one of the most beautiful historic centers along the Via Silente. Leaving the town of Stio, you return to the countryside of Magliano Nuovo, where a descent on a dirt road (if not following the komoot track) will take you to the banks of the Calore River. From here, on a road lined with oak trees, you will reach the beautiful 14th-century bridge, typical for its humpback shape. Crossing the bridge, the route moves away from the river and ascends to a comfortable secondary road, leading to the Remolino area, at the foot of the slope of the town of Felitto. The komoot track, on the other hand, follows the main road, less challenging, all on asphalt but does not allow a visit to the medieval bridge.

From the Remolino area, you can embark on a trek along the gorges of the Calore River, swim in its clear waters, and then retreat to a typical trattoria to savor Fusilli Felittesi, a delicious specialty of these places.
