We should take better care of these places because there are many good people who work with passion.show original

La piccola pianura alluvionale formata dal torrente Alento ospita le rovine di Velia, antica colonia fondata dai focesi nel VI sec. a.C.

BC with the name of Helah this Centre represented as a shining beacon of culture of ancient Greece to the philosophy developed by Senone in the Eleatic school, Parmenides and Zeno. But his story does not end here, moving from Roman rule, under which it was important commercial and military port, continuing along the middle ages when there has been a progressive loss of importance due to the silting of the Harbour, due to natural causes. This beautiful site should be more enhanced with greater promotion than with an organization that allows for a better understanding and usability. Suffice it to say that those who want to get to the venue from the South coast road must cross the road at risk landslides and that locally there is no guided tour or at least audio guide that shows the path from the excavations. What a pity! Those who love this kind of culture would be willing to pay more than three euros entry fee for a chance at a greater deepening as it does anywhere else!show original
