Olevano sul Tusciano, Italy

Olevano sul Tusciano, is a confederation of three small towns in southern Italy, situated inland a short distance from the Tyrrhenian seacoast.

Archeological finds in the connected Grotto of Nardantuono and the world-famous Grotto of St. Michael date its origins back to the Bronze Age. Throughout written history, the area has been inhabited by the Etruscans - who named the river Tusciano, marking their southern-most expansion in Italy -- The Greeks, and the Romans. The seven chapels or “Martyria” of the Grotto of St. Michael have been documented as one of the hundred "World Monuments" to be saved and protected.

Olevano also boasts the Longobard Castle, The Roman villa in S. Maria a Corte, the 16th-Century Dominican Monastery, and many works of art in various churches throughout the three towns. "A myth in the land of myths." Olevano is part of an impressive cultural heritage that unites Pompeii with Pasteum, a preserved Greek settlement; with Velia, its neighboring seaport; with the Amalfi Coast from Sorrento to Positano; and with Ravello on the Coast of Cilento.
