Romagnano al Monte is a village and comune of the province of Salerno in the Campania region of southern Italy.

History[edit]

The village was destroyed in the Irpinia earthquake of 1980 and rebuilt a few kilometers away. The ghost town became a tourist attraction in the early 2000s [1] almost like the other one in the province: Roscigno Vecchia.

Geography[edit]

Romagnano is situated in the northern side of the cilentan geographical region, at the borders of Campania with Basilicata. The new town lies in the localities of Ariola (mainly) and Palazzo.
