It’s not clear whether the village was built as a lookout post against Saracens or it was built by them. It was destroyed by an earthquake in 1044. When Normans abandoned it, it became a fief of the Mango family first, then the Carafa. Particularly interesting from a historical and artistic perspective are S. Rocco’s Church and the Convent of the Capuchins. The latter one was built in 1596, the hospices of Latronico and S.Chirico Raparo depended on it. The Church of S. Spirito, which was built in the 16th century, is also particularly interesting. If you wish to fully enjoy the peculiar connection between nature and traditions, don’t miss 'Ndenna Festival, Mountain Festival, and the Festival of the Two Parks.
