The municipality of Morigerati and its hamlet Sicilì are located in a hilly area in Cilento, about ten km from the coast of the Gulf of Policastro. The municipality is well known for the WWF oasis, where the resurgence of the Bussento river can be found in the caves of the oasis; there is also the wonderful area of the Bussento river, in the hamlet of Sicilì, where it is possible to stop immersed in nature and in the tranquillity of the river environment. The name Morigerati is said to derive either from the Greek word muriké (broom) or from murgia, a toponym indicating a hill or a ledge. According to legend, Morigerati was founded by the Italic people of Morgeti. The settlement is located in the same place as the village fortified by the Morgeti. Later it was colonised by the Romans, as the ruins in the locality of Rumanuru testify.
