This village, mounted amongst the Dolomiti Lucane, offers evocative sceneries. The ancient centre used to be a powerful Longobard stronghold.

In the Main Church (XIII century) there is a wonderful statue of the’ Madonna col Bambino’, called ‘Madonna dell’Olmo’ (Madonna of the Elm) of the XIV century.

In the ‘Madonna delle Grazie’ Chapel there is a beautiful Baroque altar. The ruins of the walls and a flight of steps of the Castle of ‘Castrum Medianum’ are still visible.

This territory is ideal for excursions through evocative scenery, such as the Valley of the Stream Caperrino, which is the boundary between this village and Pietrapertosa. Along the Stream there are the remains of some old mills.

For its natural characteristics and for the luxurious vegetation that surrounds it, Castelmezzano is the destination for many tourists, most of all in summer.
