Morigerati Bussento (SA)
The Oasis is the most important conservation project of WWF Italy and is the concrete action in defense of the natural landscape and biodiversity. Established in 1985, covers an area of 607 hectares. It is an oasis of fauna protection, subject to landscape and hydro. The management is directed, in agreement with the town of Morigerati. The town is perched atop a cliff overlooking the WWF Oasis of Morigerati cave, inside which you can admire the wonderful resurgence of Bussento. It is equipped with a nature trail and picnic area to visit the caves. We perform: tours, work camps, weeks, green, fields of study and research. A key element of the rural landscape that characterizes the territory of Morigerati is the presence of Bussento River and its catchment area riferientom. This river runs through the municipality, about 7 km, from the area of the resurgence (caves Bussento), this stream marks deeply the territory and is one of the most significant phenomena in terms of landscape and environment, in addition the underground stretch of Bussento gives life to one of the most important karst phenomena in Italy. Bussento the river, which originates from the southern slope of Mount Cervati, near Caselle in Pittari plunges into a huge sinkhole to reappear, after covering his mysterious journey into the bowels of the earth, a few kilometers further south, below the village Morigerati. The entire area offers one of the most spectacular and the most attractive nature of the Park. The walk starts from Morigerati with a beautiful trail stone paved and partly carved into the rock, after a series of switchbacks down, leads to the entrance of the cave. From here we enter through a narrow stone staircase and cross the deep and spectacular canyon carved by the river, with two wooden bridges. On the outside, the river offers scenic views along the gorge, where clear waters and fresh form flowing between deep and evocative pools and waterfalls. Throughout the area for its extraordinary beauty and landscape worth a prolonged visit.
