Padula Chartreuse and Pertosa Caves tour
We can’t miss the Padula Chartreuse and Pertosa Caves tour! Of course, another great excursion by ‘Tours & Transfers!
The most beautiful baroque building and, above all, one of the largest monasteries in Italy. The abbey, certainly the most spacious in Europe, is about 12,000 square meters and is encircled by a tiara of 84 columns. Here the existential dimension of the friars was reduced to the minimum. Therefore, they spent almost all their time inside their cells, praying, studying and, above all, meditating.
We will continue our tour, reaching Pertosa to see the famous Grotte dell’Angelo (Angel’s Grottos), located in the Cilento and Vallo di Diano National Park. The origin of the caves was about 35 million years ago. They are indeed the real pride of speleology in the province of Salerno and, above all, the most important in southern Italy.
