Rotondella is a pretty mountaintop village, located south west of Policoro. Its high position gives it unmissable views, looking over the Ionian coastline making it a great stopping point en route. Rotondella is an old Italian town with mentions of it in 1261 by the name Rotunda Marinis. It is also famous for its unusual layout, spiralling to the peak of the hilltop. The town is host to the Feast of St.Antonio Abate and the Fire Festival. This two day festival starts after the celebration of the Holy Mass, where a bonfire is lit in front of the Post Office while the bordering square hosts Albisinni music and folk songs.
