Commune in the province of Potenza

Small village in the Sele Basin, it was seriously damaged by several earthquakes. The latest earthquake in 1980 caused the destruction of many buildings and a big part of the village had to be built again.

In the old centre there is the Castle of the Girasole earls. Built in the X century, it was seriously damaged and is now being renovated, but unfortunately very little of its ancient structure remains.

The S. Antonio complex includes the Church and the Convent, with a frescoed cloister and entrance.

In ‘Corso Garibaldi’ there is a fountain with a washtub, built at the beginning of the XX century.

The centre was thoroughly built again.
