Eboli 2006 Satellite

 

Eboli is a town of Campania, Italy, in the province of Salerno, on the south edge of the hills overlooking the valley of the Sele. An agricultural centre, Eboli is known mainly for olive oil and dairy products.

The ancient Eburum was a Lucanian city, mentioned only by Pliny the Elder and in inscriptions, not far distant from the Campanian border. It lay above the Via Popilia, which followed the line taken by the modern railway.

 

Scanty remains of the ancient polygonal walls may still be seen.

The sacristy of St. Francis contains two 14th century pictures, one by Roberto da Oderisio of Naples.

A local saying, "Cristo si ่ fermato a Eboli" ("Christ stopped at Eboli"), was used by 20th century writer Carlo Levi as the title of a book, referring to the poverty in the south of Italy at the beginning of the 20th century.
