842 IT - Cilento and Vallo di Diano National Park with the Archeological sites of Paestum and Velia, and the Certosa di Padula (1998))

Brief Description

"The Cilento is an outstanding cultural landscape. The dramatic groups of sanctuaries and settlements along its three east–west mountain ridges vividly portray the area's historical evolution: it was a major route not only for trade, but also for cultural and political interaction during the prehistoric and medieval periods. The Cilento was also the boundary between the Greek colonies of Magna Graecia and the indigenous Etruscan and Lucanian peoples. The remains of two major cities from classical times, Paestum and Velia, are found there."


"奇伦托地区是一处著名的文化名胜。在它三座东西向山脊上分布着引人注目的几组圣殿和村庄,生动地展现了这一地区的历史发展过程:在 史前和中世纪期间,它不仅仅是当时主要的贸易通道,而且也是当时文化和政治交流的中心。奇伦托地区同时也是古希腊殖民地与本土的伊特拉斯坎人和卢卡尼亚人 之间的边界。古希腊时期的两座主要城市帕埃斯图姆和韦利亚的遗迹也在这里被发现。"
