San Cipriano Picentino is about. 13 km from Salerno and 8 km from Pontecagnano where you will find the nearest motorway exit. The nearest beach is approx. 10 km from here. It is a small town which dates back to the time when the Romans conquered the area and forced picentinerne, the local population to flee up into the mountains. The town is no different from other towns with impressive fortresses or artistic masterpieces, despite the fact that both in the centre and in the hills around, there are countless churches and monasteries that still attract many pilgrims.
