Commune in the province of Matera

The town, whose origins date back to the IV century B.C., belonged to the Della Marras, who built the castle in 1070, of which there are only a few ruins left; it was dominated by the Carafas and the Spinellis afterwards.

A building worth visiting is the mother church of Santa Maria Assunta, of the Baroque period but rebuilt in the XIX century, which contains a very beautiful XV century statue of St. Rocco, a XVIII century statue of Our Lady of the Rosari and a precious font.

Like in other towns of Basilicata, in Gorgoglione the May festival takes place too: a tree is made up by joining a trunk of a Turkey oak to a holly.

The peculiar and striking position of the town attracts a lot of tourists, especially in summer.
