Name of the main character:

Giacomo Cacchione, Coppola Francesco, Donato D’Ambrosio Environmental Hiking Guides, authors of the guide A piedi nel Cilento

Description:

Today’s stop will take you to visit one of the most evocative places in the Cilento region, the beautiful Calore Gorges: you start from the center of Felitto from where you take a path that in the first part is downhill and then continues on level ground along a small wall that was built to convey the feed waters of an old mill that is now disused. With a short detour, a visit to the mill is possible before continuing the walk to Remolino. From here the path resumes to go all the way along the little wall that leads, after about a kilometer to the locality Remolino. Along the way, it is possible to observe the special conformation of the rock, known by the name of “potholes,” carved out by the course of water and the force of the wind. Upon reaching Remolino, the path resumes until it reaches the “Pietratetta” bridge, a peculiar natural bridge formed through the interlocking of two huge boulders that allows one to cross from one bank of the river to the other. After visiting the bridge, continue to the Medieval Bridge of Magliano, a historic humpback bridge that marks the entrance to the Calore Gorge. After a break on the banks of the river and a picnic lunch, we return to Felitto.
