Commune in the province of Potenza

This area was inhabited in the past, as proved by the findings, in a cave, of some objects in stone and of some ceramics dating from the Bronze Age, which are now kept in the museum of Potenza.

Inside the Church of Sant’Egidio Abate, patron of this village, there are a statue of the Saint in alabaster, a cross dating from 1500 and an ostensory of 1766. San Nicola’s Church (XV century) has a relevant portal. Many palaces, such as ‘Palazzo Comunale’, ‘Palazzo Gioia’ and ‘Palazzo Arcieri’ also have very beautiful portals. This village is also famous for its thermal spa.

In Latronico artisans craft objects in stone. In the Alpi Mountain there are several deposits of pyrite, marble, quartz, talc and white alabaster. The latter is well known for its resistance and smoothness and is called ‘Marmo di Latronico’. Near the village there is the ‘Grotta di Latronico’, with stalactites and stalagmites, and, under it, some little Sepulcral Caves.
