You can recognize it from above, the pretty village of Rotondella, with its houses close to each other and its streets winding up the hill, creating a spiral that cannot be mistaken for anything else. Not to be missed here are the two main festivals. The first, dedicated to St. Anthony of Padua, which takes place on 13 June, and then that dedicated to St. Anthony Abbot, which is celebrated on 17 January with the traditional bonfire in the square and folk music. In the Rotondella area, then, a special feature is Mount Coppolo: the whole mountain is surrounded by fortification walls enclosing an acropolis attributable to the 4th century, to which a legend is linked. It is said that this town was founded by Epeo, the builder of the wooden horse that enabled the conquest of Troy. Finally, Rotondella is known as 'the balcony on the Ionian Sea', for its breathtaking view of the splendid Lucanian sea.
