Discover Policastro Bussentino: between beaches, monuments and summer events.

Policastro Bussentino is a lovely tourist resort located along the Tyrrhenian coast, a few kilometers from Sapri. Dominated by the hill on which the Torre dell'Auliva stands, Policastro extends to the mouth of the Bussento river, an ideal starting point for kayak or canoe excursions. Thanks to the presence of a well-organized railway station and, above all, thanks to the fortunate environmental location, Policastro Bussentino is a well-known tourist resort which in the summer season is populated by tourists who choose it mainly for the quality of its crystal clear waters and the beauty of the beaches that going down south, up to Sapri, are collected and dotted with pebbles and pebbles. During the summer period, various events are organised, including the well-known Blue Fish Festival. Among the points of tourist interest we also point out the Church of Santa Maria della Croce, which stands majestically on a green plain, the Church of Santa Marina Martire, inside which there are late eighteenth-century stuccoes, the fourteenth-century city walls, built on the ruins of a previous Byzantine fortification and the imposing Policastro Bussentino stronghold. We also remember the Bussento Bridge on the right of which, via a ladder, you can access a site where it is possible to practice sport fishing which however requires the obligation to return the fish caught to the river.
