    Cascate Capelli di Venere
    Stop: 2 hours
    Our excursion Departure by GT bus in the direction of the Municipality of Casaletto Spartano in the Cilentan hinterland, to discover this enchanted place. It is a short path, very simple and suitable for everyone, young and old! You will see the waterfalls up close and enjoy the tranquility that nature offers. Duration: 1/2 day Included: - Tour with authorized guide Not included:  - Entrance ticket Additional information - The program is subject to change regarding the weather and the route plan, in which case it may not be possible to make some stops or visits that are included in the program. - Duration may vary due to traffic conditions and unforeseen circumstances HAIR OF VENUS "Looking at the beauty of nature is the first step to purifying the mind" (Amit Ray). This place really seems to come out of a fairy tale. We are talking about the Hair of Venus waterfall, in Casaletto Spartano, a naturalistic oasis of considerable landscape and geonaturalistic importance. The waterfall originates from the waters of the Rio Bussentino and is so called because of the presence of the Capelvenere plant, a type of fern that thrives here, although legend tells of a place where the goddess Venus loved to take refuge. One day a shepherd passing by fell in love with the girl, in particular with her beautiful gold-colored hair that she wanted more than anything else. One night, while the goddess was asleep, the shepherd approached and cut her wonderful hair. The goddess woke up and seeing the young man running with his locks, he decided to turn them into water, which by increasing intensity was about to drown him. It was then that the goddess decided to pardon him, transforming it into a plant and leaving it next to the trickle of water that turned into a waterfall. He and Venus would stay together forever. The oasis is located under a square with a public fountain, where you can cool off on hot days. Going down the stairs and through some wooden walkways, you get to the waterfalls, which are striking for a fantastic play of light due to the water and vegetation present. Here the air is very fresh, so it becomes an excellent excursion even on the hottest days. Walking along the stream between mosses and a very luxuriant vegetation, you can also get to the equipped oasis where you can have a snack near an old disused mill.

Il Cilento non è solo mare cristallino, ci sono dei luoghi immersi nella natura che sono estremamente suggestivi! Ogni anno ci rifugiamo in questa terra ed approfittiamo per visitare qualche posto nuovo tramite l’agenzia Discover Cilento che ormai, per noi, è una garanzia, non solo perché il tutto viene organizzato meticolosamente ma anche perchè la titolare Simonetta è sempre a disposizione, di una grande umanità che ci tiene tanto per far trascorrere a chi li sceglie delle esperienze indimenticabili.
Le cascate di Capelli di Venere è uno di quei luoghi che sembra uscire da una fiaba. La pianta da cui deriva il nome si chiama capelvenere ed è un tipo di felce particolarissimo. Le pozze naturali create dalle cascate creano dei giochi d’acqua stupendi. È un luogo quasi surreale, ottimo per rilassarsi e godere di un po’ di refrigerio soprattutto durante la stagione estiva.
Il tragitto a piedi è breve quindi non richiede grandi sforzi.
L’escursione dura mezza giornata. Consigliatissima! Ps.
Il prossimo anno come ci è stato consigliato sceglieremo l’escursione all’Oasi di Morigerati!
