The village of Accettura is located in the centre of the protected area of the Gallipoli Cognato Piccole Dolomiti Lucane Regional Park, in the heart of the Basilicata region. Ancient aristocratic buildings overlook the narrow alleys of Accettura, on which the parish church dedicated to St Nicholas stands out.Every spring the town welcomes the ancestral celebrations and tree cults of theMaggio di Accettura celebration. These are rural rituals that celebrate the plant union between a holly top grafted into the bark of a large hill tree: a "wedding" that reinforces the close relationship that binds the local community with the lush and fertile nature of Basilicata. To learn more about the practices involved in Maggio di Accettura, we recommend visiting the Museum of Tree Cults, at the foot of the rocky peaks of the Piccole Dolomiti Lucane. In the municipality of Accettura there is also the Lucania Outdoor Park, an adventure park created among the large trunks of a forest known as the Montepiano forest. The route of the Lucania Outdoor Park develops along undulating walkways, pulleys and lianas, which make it an interesting attraction for families.
