Terranova di Pollino
Altitude: 926 m above s.l.
Apparently, it dates back to the 16th century. The religious buildings that are worth a visit are: the Sanctuary of the Madonna della Pietà, S. Francesco da Paola’s Church, S. Maria delle Grazie’s Chapel, St. Anthony’s Chapel, S. Rocco’s Chapel. A honorable mention goes to the ancient Palazzo Rusciani, and the ruins of the water mills. The dreamy landscapes here are to die for: Mount Pollino, Timpa Falconara, Grotta dei Briganti and Garavina Gorges. Events not to miss are the Carnival, the procession of the girdles for the Madonna della Pietà, and the craftsmanship of ancient musical instruments such as the cupe-cupe.
