Being a small village, Albano slips the travellers' attention and they almost miss it. Situated on top of a mountain, 900 metres high, it seems to be almost a forgotten corner, plunged into silence.

Its position, on one of the peaks that belong to the Dolomiti Lucane, gives it a characteristic aspect. The landscape in front of it is an evocative and picturesque scenery, high peaks and wide valleys follow one another to infinity. The village is a tangle of narrow streets and lanes leading to small squares.

The stone portals of the palaces are rather beautiful and so is the Church of S. Maria Assunta, of the XIII century, where some frescos of the XIII and IV centuries, together with a valuable painting of the XVII century, represent the Madonna del Rosario, by Pietrafesa.
