OASIS CAVES OF BUSSENTO

the best price guaranteed only on the official website

A canyon covered with lush vegetation to visit along a path that winds from the historic center along a stream with springs, waterfalls, an ancient mill up to the cave where we witness the resurgence of the karst river Bussento. The Oasis is located within a Special Conservation Area (ZSC - IT8050016) in the Municipality of Morigerati (SA). The area extends for about 607 hectares within the Cilento and Vallo di Diano National Park and is also on the world list of Geoparks. The Morigerati Oasis is a "main" geosite due to the significant karst phenomenon. The system of caves makes this oasis a unique place of its kind. Nature trails have been created to give everyone the opportunity to admire the environment and the animals. The affiliated Oasis of the Bussento Caves in Morigerati consists of an underground river environment, gorges and a river valley. The vegetation at the bottom of the gorges is characterized by the presence of mosses and ferns and by alder and willow shrubs. High up in the northwestern valley, the wood is made up of holm oak, downy oak, ash, hornbeam, while on the opposite side the Mediterranean scrub predominates, with tree euphorbia and mastic. In the clear waters of the river there are trout, crayfish, crab of the river and you can identify the signs of the passage of the otter. In the holm oak forest, on the other hand, you can find traces of equally elusive mammals such as porcupines, wild cats, wolves, among which birds of prey stand out: kestrel, goshawk, black kite, red kite, and the equally imposing raven. is equipped with a Visitor Center, a nature trail, an equipped area and an ancient stone mill.The oasis can be visited all year round by reservation (except in adverse weather conditions; the oasis is closed on rain).
