The Grotte dell'Angelo (Angel Caves)

Work in progress for the past thirty-five million years.

The Grotte dell'Angelo (Angel Caves), approx. 70km from Salerno, are located at the northern end of the National Park of Cilento and Vallo di Diano. Fascinating from a naturalistic viewpoint, their historical and archaeological features too are equally important.
Dating back 35 million years, they were first mentioned by Pliny the Elder and later by Leandro Alberti in his "Descrittione di tutta Italia" (A Descrition of all Italy) in the 16th century. The first detailed speleological exploration was conducted by the Trieste-based Alpine society of the Giulie's Cave Committee in 1926.
From 1932 to date the majestic entrance concealed by thick vebetation has given the public access to approx. 3000 metres of paths that wind their way through the caves. the fisrt part envisages a fascinating and utterly unusual boat trip on the river Negro, which originates deep within the earth.
Majestic groups of active stalactites and stalagmites adorn the caves' large cavities, while in certain parts of the ground is almost entirely invaded by magnificent hollow concretions filled with water.
Visitors can experience the suggestive atmosphere by choosing one of the four guided tours. They will enjoy a constant internal temperature of 60.8°F (16°C) all year round and always feel safe accompanied by expert guides.
Two of the tracks enable visitors to savour the heady speleological experience of the caves just as nature created them
Dark and silence reign supreme in this world, where they have ruled for millenniums.
