  • Be prepared for a steep walk, about an hour with breaks along the way. It's a well paved walking track with sitting spots along the way and beautiful panoramic views. Well worth the effort.  more »
  • A must see if you visit Viggiano. Home to the Black Madonna during the spring and summer. The 2 kilometer walk is well worth the effort.  more »
  • 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.
