South Italy and most of its little villages, is an area so little known to the European tourism yet in a delightful land wealthy of natural beauties, such as the Arch of Arcomagno, a natural arch of rock, entrance to an attractive coved beach,  with calm turquoise sea; the Faraglioni of Capri, beautiful sea rocks in the sea of Capri, one of many in the Amalfi Coast; or the Etna Volcano, still active and one of Sicily's biggest tourist attractions. History and architecture are also very important factors of southern Italy's culture and tourist attractions, like the temple ruins of Agrigento - Sicily; Capri offering one of Italy's most beautiful piazzas (town square) in the middle of town, Piazzetta, completely closed up, giving the impression of a courtyard, surrounded by many shops and cafes and the Torre dell'Orologio (Tower of Clock); or the over 40 mt. high statue of the Christ in Maratea situated on a hill over 300 mt. high offering a most breath-taking site over the port of Maratea. Another great piece of southern Italy history, from Calabria to be exact, is the Bronzi di Riace: two magnificent bronze, human-size, male statues, found in the gulf of Riace, now showing in the museum of Reggio Calabria, representing the Greek conception of heroism and beauty for their classical composure and dynamic vitality.
Great tourist attractions for both rural and coastal holidays are also the town of Rivello, based on the graceful Basilicata mountains with its typical hystorical houses that can be found in all old parts of most of southern Italy's towns, and the Trulli, typical Apulia houses with cone shaped roofs. Not to mention the delicious cuisine and friendly people, all part of a world waiting to be explored and taken advantage of.

Padula - Travel and Holiday to south Italy, accommodation by the sea or rural

PADULA - CAMPANIA - SOUTH ITALY

THE CARTHUSIAN MONASTERY OF PADULA AND THE GROTTOS OF PERTOSA
Visit Padulas' famous Carthusian Monastery, the biggest architectural complex in southern Italy, with 320 rooms, 13 courtyards, 51 staircases and 41 fountains, forming the shape of an enormous grating, the symbol of the sufferance endured by Saint Lorenzo, to whom the Monastery is dedicated.
The frontage of the Monastery is Neapolitan baroque and the high altar is made in majolica (Italian earthenware) and is inlaid with mother-of-pearl. Visit to the treasury room, the unsupported spiral staircase, the "Bernini" central fountain and the Museum.

On the road heading towards Polla, we come to which was once the ancient river bed of the river Tanagro, and the entrance to the Grotto of Pertosa (or the Angels Grotto), which is reached by boat. The grotto has an endless number of galleries, corridors and caverns where stalactites and stalagmites add to these fairytale surroundings creating an atmosphere full of mystery and magical silence.
