Originally named Fabalis, Valsinni was founded in the 11th century. It was a fief of the Sanseverino family, then passed on to the Vivacquas, and the Morras. The member of the Morra family that is most remembered is Isabella: a young poetess that was killed in 1576 by her brothers, due to her forbidden love with Diego Sandoval De Castro. Poor Isabella spent most of her life locked up in the castle, which is still in good shape, where she wrote her poems. Every year Valsinni remembers Isabella Morra by organizing a cycle of cultural events. A honorable mention goes to Palazzo Melidoro, the medieval Mother Church of medieval and the 17th century Church of the Annunciation.
