Nature and adventure in Felitto: discovering the Marmitte dei Giganti

Felitto, a small village in the heart of the Cilento, is home to the Oasis of the Calore Gorges in the locality of Remolino. This green area is open to the public and offers a chance to visit one of the most fascinating places in the Cilento National Park. Here, the Calore River, after flowing through clayey soils and carbonate rocks, widens into a basin created by an old weir. In the summer, visitors can take a pedal boat or canoe tour of the gorges and admire the so-called "Giant's Pots" deep grooves that the water has carved into the rock walls. The flora of the gorges is also extraordinary, with numerous species of ferns that thrive in the humid environment. For those who prefer hiking, there are trails that run along the river, one of which leads to the medieval bridge of Magliano. The entire area is a popular destination for sportsmen, hikers, and bird watchers. For those who want to enjoy a picnic in the great outdoors, the area has a well-equipped area with gazebos, benches, braziers, and toilets. Just a short drive away, visitors can also explore the village of Felitto and sample the local cuisine, including the famous fusilli pasta.
