Venosa was founded in 291 B.C. and is an actual ‘locus amoenus’, in which art, culture, history, archaeology and literature harmoniously combine.

Those who visit this town cannot help to be fascinated by it, as it is permeated with an enchanted atmosphere. Its great historical memories are reflected on the facades of its buildings.

Venusia, with its archaeological area, the amphitheatre, the ‘domus’, the baths, the Aragon Castle, site of the Museum, is itself an open-air museum.

The Latin poet Quinto Orazio Flacco was born here in 65 B.C. and he gives it praise and notoriety, consolidating a literary tradition that is lost in time.

Worth visiting are also the ‘Incompiuta’, the Trinità Abbey, the Cathedral and the Notarchirico Archaeological Park.
