Castelmezzano and Pietrapertosa

learn to fly: Volo dell'Angelo

Castelmezzano and Pietrapertosa

The beautiful Dolomiti Lucane are characterized by high peaks whose shapes suggested fanciful names, such as the “Golden Eagle”, the “Anvil”, the “Great Mother”, the “Owl”. They are part of a mountain range dating back 15 million years ago. Close to the Dolomites, there are two charming villages of Basilicata: Castelmezzano and Pietrapertosa.

Two jewels set in the green heart of Basilicata. The two small villages of Castelmezzano and Pietrapertosa live in symbiosis, one in front of the other, separeted by a valley and over a thousand meters of altitude in the heart of Basilicata. From both villages you can enjoy a extremely suggestive view. Visiting the fortified center of Pietrapertosa, with little narrow streets until the top of Dolomiti Lucane, is a special experience. Penetrates progressively into an interior space constructed by nature, shaped by the weather, across sandstone rocks. Gigantic natural sculptures of thousand-year. They are the sentinels of the villages of Castelmezzano and Pietrapertosa.
