Let yourself be charmed by the beauty of the protected area of Punta Campanella: this path is not a simple walk in the nature but stories, legends and architectural evidences starting from the III-II century B.C., on the background of an incredible view.
Starting from the small square of Termini, a hamlet of Massa Lubrense, follow the signs on the right leading to Punta Campanella. You will reach the last peak of the Monti Lattari chain, and then descend steeply along the rocky ridge of the point until you reach the tower and enjoy the view of the island of Capri. Returning you will follow the most comfortable path that runs along the Monte San Costanzo, accompanied by several olive groves.
Punta Campanella owes its name to the Tower of Minerva, a strategic building whose bell was used to warn the inhabitants in case of imminent danger. The latter, together with the mystery that hovers around the ancient presence of a sanctuary for the goddess Athena, are just some of the peculiarities that you will discover on this promontory.
