The site of Rossano di Vaglio is a sacred area where the suburban Sanctuary of the goddess Mefitis used to be, with a paved square and an altar.

It is one of the most important sites that bear witness of the language and worship of the Lucanians.

The site of Serra di Vaglio is composed of an urban setting-up dating back to the VI-V century B.C., with walls 7 km long and tombs with rich outfits.

One of the ancient buildings in Serra has been reconstructed and is called ‘the house of the pithoi’.

This reconstruction was carried out using the materials and techniques of the time. Inside the building there are the original elements: the base of a cabinet, the pithoi for keeping food and the terracotta weights of a loom.

It is also possible to have a view of the previous phases this site went through. Under the floor of the building there are the burials of the Archaic Era, amongst the remains of some huts of the Iron Age.
