Venosa

Overview

On a plateau surrounded by valleys and luxuriant vegetation rises Venosa, a town that was the birthplace of important figures in history and culture such as Quintus Horatius Flaccus, one of the most illustrious poets of ancient times, and Carlo Gesualdo, known as Gesualdo da Venosa, a great composer. Among the architectural highlights, not to be missed is the Aragonese Castle, built in 1470 at the behest of Duke Pirro del Balzo, majestic with its cylindrical towers and moat. Also not to be missed are: the Church of the Holy Trinity; the archaeological site containing evidence from the Republican period to the Middle Ages; the Jewish-Christian catacombs, located on the Magdalene hill. And after the cultural exploration, an excellent glass of Aglianico DOC, one of the best Italian red wines, awaits us.
