  • During the summer holidays, last night I found myself in this small but wonderful country to witness the conspiracy of the barons. Show detail and engaging in a scenario that lends itself to an interesting medieval festival. Definitely go to the castle in a moment of calm.

  • Strikingly beautiful, unique setting for souvenir photos. Ancient staircases lead to open views of the surrounding valleys

  • Arriving at a small town of Miglionico, Basilicata of just over 2,000 inhabitants, not far from Matera, it is impossible not to be attracted to the majestic castle of "Malconsiglio", where he held the conspiracy of the barons against King Ferdinand I of Naples. The Castle, which is shaped like a parallelogram flanked by seven towers of square shape (the oldest) or circular, perched atop a cliff which offers an excellent view of the green hills that surround Lake San Giuliano until getting lost with your eyes on the Bradano Valley. It's evocative stroll through the narrow streets of the town, admiring the broad landscape of towers and medieval doors until you reach the rich mother church. And, captivated by this maze of narrow streets, turned out to be a pleasant surprise visit to the restaurant-pizzeria "The meeting" where, in a sunny Sunday in almost mid-July, we were greeted, at lunch, with courtesy and kindness and we enjoyed simple meals and fragrant Earth lucana.
