Commune in the province of Potenza

The origins of Vietri are rather ancient, so that it was thought that its name came from the Roman settlement ‘Campi Veteres’, built as a consequence of the ambush that the Lucanian Flavio set up for Tiberio Gracco. It was first a Gothic and then a Longobard stronghold. Later it became part of the Principality of Salerno and in the XVIII century was surrendered to Sangro. Later it was sold to the Caracciolo family in 1705.

Inside the village, there is the Parish Church of San Nicola di Mira, characterised by a facade in Rococo style, a portal surmounted by a window in Baroque style and a bell tower in Romanesque style.

Very interesting is also the 1660 Church which belongs to the Convent of the Capuchins, in which there are several paintings by Antonio Stabile.

The Church of the Annunziata has a beautiful portal of 1690, some wonderful frescos of the XVIII century, some paintings of the XVII and XVIII centuries and a very beautiful stone stoup.
