The Calore River Valley is very fertile, it is surmounted by the Alburni Mountains, with their white peaks, that Virgil defined “Ilicibus virentem Alburbum” to underline their white colour and the presence of prosperous woods.
The houses were built around castles, noble palaces or the bell towers of the churches. In the valley there are many towns: Aquara, Serre, Ottati, Corleto Monforte, Postiglione, Controne, Sicignano degli Alburni, Bellosguardo, Roscigno, Sant’Angelo a Fasanella and Castelcivita. These towns have interesting archaeological areas, wonderful landscapes, a nice folklore, tasteful and delicious typical products, beautiful colours.
