Walking along the borders: The route between Sapri and the Torre Di Mezzanotte between Mediterranean scrub and views of the Gulf of Policastro.

A 10-kilometer round-trip route suitable for all, starting from the port of Sapri and arriving at the Torre Di Mezzanotte on the border with Basilicata. You will find yourself immersed in the green of the Mediterranean scrub with some glimpses of the sea and ancient coastal watchtowers. Along the first section, you can see the Scoglio Scialandro with the Spigolatrice di Sapri. There are also several fountains with drinking water. The second section is narrower with some detours to the sea that in some cases are quite challenging and not suitable for everyone. In particular, the descent to the Well and the Grotta di Cartolano.

The views are breathtaking in any case: for long stretches you can admire the Gulf of Policastro and in the vicinity of the Canale di Mezzanotte, the border point between Sapri and Acquafredda, the coast of Maratea. In the past, the trail was called “Apprezzam’ u ciucc'" and it was the only way to connect with the nearby Maratea, especially for commercial exchanges. Goods were transported by donkeys along the trail, which was sometimes very narrow, and this posed a difficulty especially when two animals met that could not pass each other. A local legend tells that the animals and their loads were evaluated. In exchange for half the value of the least valuable donkey, the latter, unfortunately, was made to fall into the sea.
