Pisticci

Description

Located between the rivers Basento and Cavone, in an area characterized by clay soil, laid out in a deep and evocative still-scale fields, known as calanchi (badlands). Known as "Pesticium" during the Romans Ages, the municipal territories were already inhabited by Italic tribes, since the X century B.C., as evidenced by a necropolis, recently brought to light. During the period of Ancient Greece, the town was an important centre of the Meta-pontine area and after the fall of the Roman Empire, under the Norman rule it became a fief that, over the centuries, belonged to different families of Lords.
Not to miss:
- the Church of Saints Peter and Paul (1542), which preserves inside valuable paintings and engraved Neapolitan school wooden altars of the XVIII century;
- the Church of Santa Maria del Casale, dating from the XII century, with a XIV century portal and a XV century rose window;
- the Church of St. Anthony, with frescoes of the XVII and XVIII century and a series of precious paintings;
- the Masseria (fortified farm) located in the district of San Basilio, originally built by Ruggiero the Norman as a fortified residence, later it was converted into an abbey by the Basilian monks and finally into a farm, owned by the family Berlingieri;
- the ruins of the Norman castle;
- the Bruni Tower.
