Tourism

One of the features of the rugged country-side is Gole del Calore di Felitto an area of gorges between Felitto and Magliano Vetere formed by the Calore lucano river. This area if of great geological interest is also rich in flora and fauna.

One of the many historical buildings in the province is the chapter house belonging to the Certosa di Padula (or Carthreuse of Padula or of San Lorenzo in Padula), a Carthusian monastery, in the town of Padula. The building has evolved over centuries, the earliest parts are of the early 14th century. A mannerist cloister leads to the church, a later 17th century cloister has loggias supported by rusticated columns, this adds to the general baroque air of the building. Today the chapter house is home to the Museo Archeologico della Lucania Occidentale which has many ancient artifacts dating from Roman times. Agropoli, with a population of 20,000, is 30 miles south of Salerno.
