Slow pace of life, excellent food and wine offer and healthy air have made this one of the most popular towns in Cilento.



Il village of Caselle, on Mount Pittari, is a village of "huts" (or also called Caselle), and preserves the spontaneous urban planning born in many small Cilentan centers when the peasant communities from the Bussento Valley moved - during the invasion of the Alto Middle Ages - in the highest and safest places.

One of the itineraries to "explore" the territory is the Path of San Michele, which leads from the central square to Mount Pittari in about forty minutes, thus reaching a panoramic point over the entire valley. Along the way there are two caves, which host the santuario dedicated to San Michele Arcangelo, hence the name of the path.
