Park
“Pollino National Park (Italian: Parco Nazionale del Pollino) is a national park in southern Italy that straddles the regions of Basilicata and Calabria. It is Italy's largest national park, covering 1,925.65 square kilometers.[1][2] The park includes the Pollino and Orsomarso massifs, which are part of the southern Apennine Mountains. The park's highest point is Serra Dolcedorme, which is 2,267 meters high.[3] The park's symbol is the rare Bosnian pine tree. The common beech is the park's most prevalent tree. The park is also home to a variety of medicinal herbs.[4] The park is home of the oldest Europeen tree, a Heldreich's pine estimated 1,230 years old.”

History Museum
“This is a nice park to visit. It’s not expensive, it has free parking, it’s a nice area to walk around. There are few others wondering about so time goes by slowly and leisurely. There are two museums on the property. In the summer, there are concerts and events held here in the evenings with the side wall of the Byzantine church as the backdrop.”

“The place is "styled", the design has nothing to do with a clear Architecture, it looks more like "too much decorated". The prices for a dinner are very high for the region, but the one who loves fancy, will feel comfortable. Our advice is always the ice cream: Probably the very best Gelato in the entire district. Don't miss it! Unfortunately only open in high season in evening hours.”
