The Sammaro Springs embody an unparalleled tourist experience in the heart of the Cilento, Vallo di Diano, and Alburni National Park. Located at the terminal part of the enchanting Sammaro Gorges, these springs can be reached through a charming trail winding through pristine nature. The journey begins in the municipality of Sacco, offering an immersion among beech and chestnut trees, culminating in the crystal-clear view of the Sammaro stream waters.
The Sammaro Gorges represent a sought-after destination for hiking and canyoning enthusiasts. This location provides an unforgettable experience, thanks to the majestic Sammaro Bridge, one of the tallest single-arch bridges in Europe, built in the '60s to connect Sacco to Roscigno. The bridge towers over the gorge, offering breathtaking panoramas of the surrounding nature.
However, the attractions don't stop at the Sammaro Springs. In the immediate vicinity lies the captivating ghost town of Roscigno Vecchia, abandoned in the early 1900s due to frequent landslides. This small village, declared a UNESCO World Heritage site and home to the Museum of Peasant Civilization, is inhabited by a lone resident, Mr. Giuseppe Spagnolo, whose friendliness accompanies visitors through the stories of the place. A visit to Roscigno Vecchia provides a suggestive experience, allowing immersion in the threads of history and culture of this fascinating location.
In conclusion, the Sammaro Springs and the surrounding gorges constitute a must-visit for nature and history lovers, offering a unique and unforgettable experience in the heart of the Cilento, Vallo di Diano, and Alburni National Park.
