Polla (Park of Cilento and Vallo di Diano and Mountain Community Vallo di Diano) is the northern entrance of Vallo di Diano, in a plain crossed by Tanagro River, a tributary of the Sele, to 460 m in altitude.

There are two versions of the origin of the name Polla. According to local tradition in the area was returned to a mausoleum at the time of Nerone achieved by the will of his widow, Insteia Polla. Historians incorrectly interpret the signing of women, meaning that the temple was dedicated to Apollo and therefore considered that the name of the country derived from the veneration of this deity. It 'much more likely that the name derives from several "pools of water" in the area.
