  • The Madonna di Viggiano is dark skinned, completely covered with sheets of molten gold coming from donations of the faithful. In May is carried in pilgrimage to the sacred mountain where he was found. Back to church in Viggiano in September and we make big celebrations. We traveled by car on the road up to ski facility then walk on x the paved path until about 1700 m high. The view is stunning! The walk should be done with caution and lots of willpower. Even non-believers will be overwhelmed after so much effort. We have reached the Summit in an hour doing so many breaks. The place is clean and at the top there is a drinking fountain. All video surveillance, groomed and well run. The descent is obviously a no-brainer! We recommend sunblock and hat as a result.

  • From the first Sunday in April to the first Sunday in September, he moved to its former home to the sacred mount. Go for it. Worth it for the encounter with Mary and the panoramic views of the val d'agri.

  • 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.
