The Oasis is first and foremost preservation of a territory, landscapes and natural values maintenance.
Our oasis is a canyon covered with lush vegetation to visit walking on a path running from the historic center along a stream with springs, waterfalls, an ancient mill up to the cave where there is the Bussento river resurgence.
The Oasis is located into a Site of Community Importance (SIC IT8050016) in the Morigerati Municipality (Sa).
The area covers about 607 hectares inside the Cilento and Vallo di Diano National Park and it’s also on the world list of Geoparks. The Morigerati Oasis is a "main" geological site due to the significant karst phenomenon.
