A village on the Matera hill, it boasts very ancient origins, as evidenced by various archaeological finds. Of its past in the settlement, it is possible to observe the remains of castle built at the behest of the Della Marra family.
Among the places of worship, we can admire the Mother Church of Santa Maria Assunta, dating back to the seventeenth century and preserving a stone holy water stoup and a 13th century crucifix. Not far from the village, in a prominent panoramic position, we find the Church of Santa Maria di Pergamo, of very ancient origins, perhaps dating back to the 11th century, whose dome with the characteristic onion shape is still preserved today.
Not far from the village, we can admire the “Grotta dei briganti”, at the foot of a 40 meter high rocky wall; its name seems to derive from its use as a home by brigands during their raids. Finally, of particular naturalistic and cultural interest is the so-called “Cinto dell’Eremita”, an ancient settlement dating back to the Etruscan period.
