Punta d'aglio is one of the most beautiful places in the territory of Scala, a favorite destination for walkers and climbers. And 'the presentation card of the Lattari Mountains. A landscape of rocks and Mediterranean vegetation facing the sea to Atrani and Amalfi.
From the village of Campidoglio l towards Punta d'Aglio, the path is immersed in the scents of the Mediterranean. Ravello in the background that follows us even more sly and behind, at the height of Capo d'Orso, the sculpted rocks that jut high above the sea, where some see the profile of a sleeping giant.
Through a dense coniferous forest the track reaches a tunnel dug into the rock. During the last war it was used by some families of Scala , as shelter from the bombing. We are on the path n° 357, shortly you will be able to reach a fountain to fill up our water bottles.
After a last turn opens amazing scenery: the cliff of Punta d'Aglio, a tall and imposing rock wall at the center of a large mountainous amphitheater facing the sea.

A climber tackles the cliff of Punta d'Aglio. Considered the most beautiful of the Amalfi Coast the wall is a red gray limestone with variable difficulty, fun for novices and experts.
Along the valley along a semicircular path you reach a wooded area, the source of Ficanoce. Hence, instead of heading towards the village of Pogerola, you can go down to Amalfi and get into the magical Valle delle Ferriere.
