Discovering the ruines of the Cospita monastery in Agerola city
Trekking in Agerola along a medium-loop circuit that leads to the ruins of a medieval monastery, built on a small strip of land overlooking Amalfi. From here you can admire a great view of the Gulf of Salerno and the Amalfi Coast.
It starts from Avitabile’s Square in the hamlet San Lazzaro di Agerola. Take the road to Radicosa until the sharp bend to the left which closes the stretch steep uphill. Here we continue uphill along a narrow road. Near a small chapel turn left on a trail with steps. Continue up to the ridge (a 850) where it opens the view of Amalfi and you can see down the ruins of the monastery Cospita. It continues on a path on the ground downhill which takes place upstream of a rock wall.
Where this is attenuated, bending sharply to the right (it crosses the path 01 that also forms the elbow, but in the opposite direction. Do not take it). It now continues along the foot of the wall and we head towards the ruins of the medieval convent of Cospita, now visible at the lower edge of a wooded ledge limited upstream and downstream by high overhangs.
Return to same route or by following the signals that lead toward the base of the upper parades and that going allow to overcome a steep gully (medieval path at times excavated in the rock). This variant (recommended only to experts because hard) then reconnects to the mule stepped used for the first leg.
