#13 PORTA ROSA IN VELIA, IN THE HEART OF THE MEDITERRANEAN

VELIA: A GLORIOUS PLACE FOR REAL FANS (AS IT IS OUTSIDE THE USUAL TOURIST ROUTES), WHICH STILL RETAINS A TRUE JEWEL, WITNESS OF OUR GREAT CIVILIZATION.

IN VELIA, THE ANCIENT ELEA, THE HEART OF MAGNA GRECIA, THE TRAVELER FALLS SILENT IN FRONT OF PORTA ROSA, A UNIQUE EXAMPLE OF GREEK ARCH DATING BACK TO 4TH CENTURY, A UNIQUE TREASURE OF THAT PERIOD’S ARCHITECTURE, THE FIRST ROUNDED ARCH IN OUR HISTORY . THE CHARM OF THE EXCAVATIONS IS AMPLIFIED BY THE SITE LOCATION, THAT OVERLOOKS THE SEA OF CILENTO. HISTORY AND PHILOSOPHY LOVERS STROLLING IN THE STREETS OF VELIA GET A THRILL OF PURE EMOTION, AS RETRACING THE STEPS OF THE FATHERS OF THE ELEATIC SCHOOL PHILOSOPHY MEANS TO BE REBORN WITH THEM. IT IS HARDLY SURPRISING THAT THE ONSET OF THE LOGOS TOOK PLACE RIGHT HERE, BLESSED BY THE SUN AND THE SEA.

THE SUPREME HARMONY OF THE ELEMENTS IS SO VIVID IN THIS PLACE, THAT NO IMAGINATION EFFORT IS NECESSARY. BREATHE IN THE SALT, THE ARBUTUS AND THE HAPPINESS ARISING FROM THE PRIDE OUR ORIGINS.
