Torre Orsaia is a town and comune in the province of Salerno in the Campania region of south-western Italy. It is included in the Cilento and Vallo di Diano National Park.

Overview[edit]

The medieval town is situated on a green hill in the middle of centuries old Pisciotta olive trees. The stone fountains "dell’Olmo" and "della Scalitta" which are situated just outside the town are witnesses of the local craft industry.[2]
