Palinuro is one of those places that have always fascinated travelers of all ages. The rocky promontory extending into the sea with its beauty, but also with its dangers for the ancient sailors, has inspired the poet Virgil the passage of the Aeneid in which he narrates the death of the helmsman of Aeneas, Capo Palinuro takes its name from him. The sea is crystal clear. The wide and sandy beaches alternate with rocky stretches accessible only by sea where they hide true natural jewels such as the beach of good sleep or the suggestive caves. At least one visit to the Arco Naturale and the nearby Mingardo beach is worth a visit. Its enchanting landscape has been repeatedly chosen as a colossal movie location.
