The Grounds


Access to the La Rondinaia is by way of a series cliffs side views which are so typical of the fortress like town of medieval Ravello. The main building isn’t even visible as you enter the grounds due to the luxuriant green vegetation. The arduous terrain led to the construction of terraces which today are a major characteristic of the area. Cypresses, lemon trees, pines and olive trees abound in the grounds. The park area is a concert of approving sighs created by the breeze through the trees. A statement of the relationship between man and nature, where man undoubtedly receives more than he gives.
