Camerota/Marina di Camerota

Camerota, famous seaside resort on the coast south of the Cilento, is known for its port (Marina di Camerota) and its splendid beaches. Its name probably derives from the greek kamaròtos "bent" or from Latin camurus "curved". In both cases refers to the many limestone caves in which it is still possible to find relics dating back into the Paleolithic era archaeologists. The coastline extends from the "Cave of the Cyclops" (close to Palinuro) in Porto Infreschi (a paradise for lovers of diving and rocky beaches).

In one of the caves of Lentiscellaare exposed  the Lion of Caprera, a schooner that in 1890-1891 crossed the Atlantic from Montevideo to Livorno.
