Commune in the province of Matera

The town is situated on a hill and dominates the torrent Salandrella Valley. Its origins probably date back to the Norman period.

It later became a feud of the baron Gilberto from Salandra, who was succeeded by Francesco Attendolo Sforza and the Revertera family.

In the town, it is possible to see the ruins of the castle, built in the XII century, of which there are few walls and two arches left.

The XVII century ‘Convento della Riforma’, characterised by an elegant portal and sculptures portraying two lions in Romanesque style, is very beautiful from an artistic point of view.

The church of Sant'Antonio is noteworthy. Inside it, it is possible to admire a precious XVII century polyptych portraying the Virgin Mary with the Infant, attributed to the Monk Simone da Firenze, and another polyptych, dating from 1580, by Antonio Stabile.
