The Cilento Villages
San Giovanni a Piro

Among the green of the mount “Bulgaria” and the blue of the Gulf of Policastro is nestled the Village of San Giovanni a Piro.
The village is characterized by small houses leaning against each other, divided into cobbled narrow streets and cramped pedestrian passageways. Between the streets the tiny smoking chimneys meet the unique Cilentan sky.
Once in the Village, the guide will lead the group at the discovery of the ancient Cenobio Basiliano: one of the few monastic complexes with Greek-Byzantine rite found in Campania, dated to the tenth century.
The trip will move to the nearby hamlet whose name is Bosco to sample the unique flavors of the typical local cuisine.
The afternoon will be dedicated to the visit of the remarkable House Museum of the Spanish painter Josè Garcia Ortega.
The site testifies the nearness of the great Spanish painter to the socio-political themes of his homeland. His art represents the principle of freedom from all oppression and totalitarian regime form.
