Grottolella is a town and comune in the province of Avellino, Campania, Italy.
It is famous for its fraction Pozzo del Sale; years ago there was a water well here, with saline water inside, from which people used to get salt for free. Now the well is out of order, but the salt water, in the subsoil, could be used for a spa.
