Commune in the province of Potenza

The old Acheruntia was built on the top of a hill delimited by the River Bradano and by its tributary Fiumarella.

At its foot there is a landscape dominated by wide spread vineyards that proof the richness of this land where the uva aglianico (a particular kind of grapes) is mostly cropped and then for producing the famous local wine.

Finds dating back to the VI-IV century B.C. state the presence on this territory of old settlements. A tomb of the VI century was found as well as a small bronze statue representing Heracles, protector of the Italian peoples.

The rich historical tradition of Acerenza, subject to several dominations, is linked with a solid religious worship.

Its Cathedral dedicated to S. Canio, patron Saint of this village, is an actual pearl that, in the harmony of its architectural features, reflects the light of the faith it guards.
