Several Legs of a Slow Travel Across Geosites of an 'Inner' Cilento
Hiking is one of the principal activities offered at Casale Il Sughero. There are a lot of interpretations of a territory, we have chosen to start from the one beginning from Cilento as Geopark. Cilento, before being strongly biodifferent is geodifferent: UNESCO had found 24 geosites, 160 in total in the whole Park including the Adjoining Areas in our district (that is 'landscape area' called 'Monte Forcella-Serralunga con il fiume Bussento'). It is possible going across different paths that go along the history of the place and across the geosites. There are someones near and reachable on foot from here and connecting the most meaningful places of the district, living them both by trekking/bike-trekking and on foot/cycling.
Moreover, whoever comes here has the opportunity to share our life-style and know the social and anthropologic landscape, along with the natural and architectural one, of the Southern Lucanian Cilento, often unknown and bordering to Basilicata region.
This part of Cilento is rich of animals, water, sea and woods and we call it 'Cilento Interiore e Ulteriore', (Inner and Ulterior Cilento) to stress the difference from other well-known places in the region because it is absolutely more authentic.
