Golden Calf Waterfall - Farindola (PE)
In the territory of Farindola in the Valle d'Agri there is the Vitello d'Oro waterfall, a spectacular 28 meters high waterfall, one of the most important on the southern slope of the Gran Sasso group. Legend has it that since the dawn of time, to some women intent on drawing water with a basin, near the waterfall, at dawn of St. John's day, appeared a small golden-yellow calf, from which it was taken the name given to the water jump. Note the contrast between the rocky slopes with poor vegetation and the basin that is covered with green trees grown spontaneously.
