Vietri is the gateway between Basilicata and Campania, a naturalistic and cultural world to discover, made of that authentic nature typical of the Marmo Melandro and of architectural and historical treasures of great charm. A series of gorges, interspersed with various sulphur springs, bring it closer to the morphology of a small canyon; a visit to the Puzz’gnunt Gorges is indeed a fascinating naturalistic excursion among whirlpools and high and steep rocky walls carved by the waters of the Melandro. Surprising is the artistic heritage featuring a rich series of works of art preserved in numerous churches including the Mother Church of San Nicola di Mira, the Chapel of the Madonna delle Grazie and the Convent of the Friars Minor Capuchin.
