(Path of the Mediterranean coastline of the E12)

The trail begins on the left just after the road bridge over the river Mingardo going from Palinuro to Marina di Camerota. Path a first short stretch more challenging for the height difference, the trail gains elevation gradually through the pine forest with wide views of the coast (Capo Palinuro, Cefalo Creek) and hinterland. It goes for the town Iazzo Sant'Iconio where was an old Basilian abbey and where there is a large colony of licorice. Then continue on a smooth dirt road to the village of San Antonio where there is a chapel dedicated to the saint and which offers a beautiful view of Camerota and Marina .
From here you can choose to return to the same path, or go down a farm road to the provincial Palinuro - Marina di Camerota (instead. Cala d'Arconte) here and finish the hike or even better get to Marina di Camerota through a convenient boardwalk through the villages and beach Capogrosso Calanca (lengthening the hike at about 15 km).
