This village is part of the National Park of Pollino.

It was built in the XV century, when the Sanseverino from Bisignano gave the manor and the surrounding land to the monks of the Sanctuary of Santa Maria del Saggittario. These monks, as a sign of gratitude, called this place ‘Casale di San Severino’.

In the Main Church of Santa Maria degli Angeli, built in 1500, it is possible to see a Cross used in processions dating from 1600, a wooden Crucifix dating from 1500, a precious ostensory, several paintings dating from 1600 and a wooden sculpture dating from 1500, representing the Deposition of Christ, by Guido Mazzoni. In this Church the statue of the ‘Madonna del Pollino’ is kept. This statue is worshipped during one of the most important religious events in Basilicata. In the cave in which, according to the tradition, the statue of the Madonna in Byzantine style had been found, there is the Sanctuary of the ‘Madonna del Pollino’.

In the area around this village there are many water mills dating from the XVIII and the XIX centuries, almost all along the Stream Frido.
