Commune in the province of Potenza

This village is situated on a hill overlooking the Melandro Valley. It was originally called ‘Castrum Sancti Angeli de Fratis’ and developed around a Basil Convent.

The Church of Santa Maria ad Nives was rebuilt after the 1694 earthquake. It has the layout of a cross, with one nave and two aisles. Inside it, there are a high altar in golden wood with floral decorations, a Crucifix of 1726, some statues of the XVIII century and a carved wooden throne.

In the Church of the Annunziata there is a group of statues representing the Pietà, in a style that reminds of the Dutch one.

Since 1971, in the cave of the old Basil Convent there has been a permanent crib.
