CIRIGLIANO

Not too distant from Guardia Perticara, in the territory which lies next to the Agri Valley, is where one will find Cirigliano, immersed in green vegetation and lying in a panoramic position.

History

Its name derives from Praedium Cerellianum, with reference to a certain Cerellio, who existed during the Roman era.

During the Medieval period, it firstly belonged to the San Michele Archengelo di Montescaglioso Abbey and therefore various nobles, among which the Della Marra and Formica, current owners of the Castle.

Like other locations in Basilicata, there was a huge decrement of the population beginning in the XVII century, due to frequent Plague epidemics.

A visit to the City

The village preserves much of its Medieval town planning, with Palazzo Baronale or the Castle in the centre with an annexed chapel where a Pietrafesa canvass is preserved.

From the Castle, strolling through characteristic Cirigliano, where one can admire nobiliary buildings, one will arrive at the 16th century Chiesa Madre, which preserves a San Giacomo statue in its interior.

Place of interest

The Castle of Palazzo Baronale; Palazzo Fanelli; S. Maria Assunta Matrix Church (1500); Private Addolorata Church (Formica XVII century); Madonna della Grotta Chapel; S. Maria Vignola Chapel; Fountains.
