Viggianello

Description

Located at the foot of the Pollino, in the valley of the Mercure-Lao, Viggianello is a town in the province of Potenza. The origins seem to date back to the III century B.C., during the Second Punic War, and the local historians report the presences of a "Castrum Byanelli", settlement built along the ancient Via Popilia. In the X century, Basilian monks settled in the village and in the XI century, the main centre developed around an imposing Norman castle. From 1484 to 1809 the town was always under the control of the Sanseverino of Bisignano.
Sites of Interest:
- the Greek-Roman archaeological areas in the districts of Caloi and Spedarei;
- the remains of the feudal Castle of the Sanseverino;
- the Neoclassical style Church of San Francesco of Paola, built in the last century;

Inside are preserved valuable paintings of the XVII and XVIII centuries, a wooden choir of the XVII century, a pipe organ of 1880, a XVI century baptismal font in alabaster, a marble altar attributed to the sculptor Palmieri and a holy relic of the Saint;
- the Chapel of St. Sebastian, with a splendid wooden ceiling with frescoes;
