  • Imagine that you have lost your way, you find yourself in front of a gate, surrounded by woods. The only whiff that makes wind dried the leaves whirl, now, lichens that cling to the trunks. Looks like an atmosphere of desolation, it doesn't. Beyond that gate, after a climb that leads to 1725 metres, there is light. For those who believe it is the light of Mary that welcomes those who can get to the top. It is not a particularly difficult route, the road is good, making various stages you can. You will arrive at the top with the breath, proud of yourself and think, after this experience of throwing away cigarettes. Don't miss out on this path, you will feel light in the soul.

  • Viggano is among other things the winter ski resort with lift operating but above all a place of the Madonna and the harp maker. The "Festival of the Madonna" is each on the 1st of may weekend and held on the first weekend in September. In may, is the Madonna on the mountain in a small Basilica, accompanied by a feast in the village, and who wunderts, in September with a four-day grand celebration back worn to Viggiano. A large monument was dedicated to last year at the entrance to the innumerable institutions. The small town, with a beautiful, medieval village counts about 20-25 thousand. visitors that that end is never-ending sales booths with specialties or arts and crafts, as well as stock up on historical instruments during the Festival. "Although the harp makers are no longer present, there are a number of musikslischer performances that are worth also overnight in a hotel on the site, or in the surrounding during the Festival" Agriturismo "to remain. The return of the Madonna on the Sunday afternoon is a great event. Don Paolo, the "reigning" pastor of the Congregation, is a true entertainer, who leads the procession with dedication and commitment. Maybe take the opportunity on the way to your next holidays in Cilento or in Calabria to visit the Festival. From the motorway exit "Sala Consilina" Viggiano is situated only about 30' minutes travel time in 1000 m height. The total Mückenfrei!
