Historic centres of Casal Velino and Velia

Historic centres of Casal Velino and Acquavella retain the charm of the past. Situated on lush hills, they are characterized by steep alleys and little houses huddled, aristocratic palaces and ancient Churches. On the top of these towns you can admire the beauty of landscapes especially in spring days.

In Marina di Casal Velino you can visit Chapel of “S. Matteo ad Duoflumina” and the ruins of tombs dating back to medieval times and recently discovered. Here the relics of the Apostle Matthew were guarded until 954, and now they are in the Cathedral of Salerno.

Bordering the town of Casal Velino there is the Archaeological Park of Velia, that together with Temples of Paestum is one of the most beautiful sites to visit, because of its historical importance and its natural landscapes.
