Basilicata’s strong point is certainly its varied landscape: in addition to protected areas, expanses of meadows and sunny fields, evocative gullies and immense dams, Basilicata has two national parks, the Lucan side of the Pollino Park and the Appennino Park Lucano Val d’Agri Lagonegrese, and two regional parks, the Natural Park of Gallipoli Cognato Piccole Dolomiti Lucane and the Natural History Archaeological Park of the Rupestrian Churches of Matera.

The regional nature reserves occupy a large part of the territory between green natural walls and abundant river waters and natural reservoirs, such as the Abetina di Laurenzana, in the province of Potenza, the Bosco Pantano di Policoro, in the province of Matera, and then the areas of Lake Laudemio, Lake Pantano di Pignola, the Lakes of Monticchio, up to the WWF Oasis of Lake San Giuliano, in the municipalities of Grottole, Miglionico and Matera.

The dam system is also impressive from that of San Giuliano, with the nearby wildlife oasis on the Bradano, the stone lake of Pertusillo, on the Agri, up to the Monte Cotugno plant, in Senise, which transforms the Sinni into a lake . Whatever the naturalistic offer sought, unique landscapes make Basilicata a region suitable for everyone!
