The wonders of Cilento



Ascea is a town in the National Park of Cilento and Vallo di Diano and Alburni, consisting of a Territory that combines mountain scenery with coast settings. Ascea Marina, which is part of the municipality, is a wonderful seaside resort on the Cilento coast, Blue Flag 2016. This beautiful beach of soft golden sand stretches for kilometers, dominated by hills of olive trees and other typical Mediterranean plants.
A striking small inlet is bounded by the majestic cliffs of Punta del Telegrafo, where hidden bays and coves open up, such as the Baia d'Argento and Baia della Rondinella, which can only be reached by sea.

On the beach there are dune formations which are the summer flowering environment of the beautiful protected species of the sea lily, the picking of which is prohibited. A bike path runs along the seafront for over 5 km, allowing for easy movement without a car.

The municipality houses one of the most important archaeological sites in Southern Italy, Elea-Velia, after the two names given to the ancient city by the Greeks first and the Romans later. It was home of philosophers Parmenides and Zeno, members of the Eleatic and pre-Socratic philosophical school. The site was a revolution in the field of archaeology with the “Porta Rosa” (Pink Gate), a wonderful example of arch created by the Greeks. The headland with the Norman tower overlooks entire Cilento and the sea of Ascea.
