Immersed in history and nature

What to visit in the surroundings

Everywhere in the Marsico territory and its surroundings, as well as in the neighbouring municipalities, we can find a place to visit, a museum or a historical building; in every period of the year there are fairs, patronal feasts and festivals that give everyone the possibility to taste the typical products of our Basilicata.

In particular, our town, of pre-Roman origins, is full of natural beauty, ancient buildings and sacred places, and especially the latter have an immeasurable historical and artistic value.

Charterhouse of San Lorenzo

Moving a few kilometers, on the Campanian side, in the municipality of Padula we find the Charterhouse of San Lorenzo, the largest in Italy and among the largest in Europe, which since 1957 houses the Provincial Archaeological Museum of Western Lucania, in 1998 it was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO along with the nearby archaeological sites of Velia, Paestum, the Vallo di Diano and the National Park of Cilento.

Moreover, inside the Charterhouse are organized concerts and cultural events, which, thanks to the very special location, assume a unique atmosphere.

Caves of Pertosa-Auletta

Not far away, in the municipality of Pertosa we find the caves of Pertosa-Auletta, peculiar because they are the only ones in Italy where you can navigate an underground river, the Negro, but they are also the only ones in Europe to preserve the remains of a pile-dwelling village, dating back to the second millennium BC.

Here, too, are held very special cultural events among which stands out “L’Inferno di Dante nelle Grotte” – “Dante’s Inferno in the Caves” – hosted for about eight years, and “Ulisse: il Viaggio nell’Ade” – “Ulysses: Journey to Hades”.

There are not, here, backstage and papier-mâché backdrops, but a prehistoric scenery that counts thousands of years.
