Coastal caves

They are not only beautiful: the coastal caves of Cilento are world-class naturalistic excellences with an ancient story.

The coastal caves are intact habitats of prehistoric man.

Between Palinuro and Marina di Camerota, one of the most beautiful stretches of coast in Europe, there is also a system of prehistoric coastal caves among the most important in the world.

Over 60 caves have been explored between Palinuro and Marina di Camerota, and have been found stone tools whose estimated age is nearly half a million years.

A must-see to know this beautiful and too hidden excellence of Cilento.
