grava di vesalo, the angel's valley in laurino
It is one of the most fascinating karst phenomena in Southern Italy, at about a thousand meters above sea level, on the border between the municipalities of Laurino and Valle dell'Angelo.
Mysterious and impenetrable. A gigantic natural sinkhole in the heart of the Cilento and Vallo di Diano National Park. It is the burden of Vesalo, one of the most fascinating karst phenomena in the South, at about a thousand meters above sea level, on the border between the municipalities of Laurino and Valle dell'Angelo.
A chasm in the limestone rock, consisting of a double well of 43 and 100 meters, at the bottom of which opens a tunnel cave, into which the waters of the Silenzio stream pour. A stone cathedral sunk in the whirlpool of the earth. A mountain that from the outside is among the most impressive in Cilento but that inside is a sleight of hand. Ravines, wells, tunnels, overhangs, rivers, lakes, tunnels, stalactites, stalagmites, limestone sculptures.
A paradise to be explored that speaks with the voice of the wind and water that here dig, erode, embroider. A work that has been going on for two hundred million years. For speleologists it is one of the most fascinating places in Italy, for many a place still completely unknown.
