The Aragonese Castle – The Mediterranean diet – The delightful marina
Agropoli, which means “high city”, is clearly a town of Greek origin. Overlooking the sea, it was, according to some scholars, the ancient acropolis of Paestum. Later, in Roman times, the village Ercula arose, more or less near the current Lungomare di San Marco, a saint much revered in both the coastal areas of the province of Salerno. The ancient Greek and Roman city dominated by the splendid Aragonese castle stands a few steps from Paestum and is the natural outlet to the sea. Known for its seafront, the beautiful castle and the delightful little port, Agropoli is the main gateway to the wonderful and uncontaminated territory that is the Cilento, a land of mythology, nature, sea, history, traditions and Mediterranean diet.
