The village of Buonvicino was born around the end of the 13th century from the union of three distinct residential centers: Salvato and Tripidone of Hellenic origin, Trigiano, built by the Romans. Buonvicino rises between the cliffs and forests above it. The village winds along the crest of the banks of the Torrente Corvino. From the sea of Diamante to the mountains, just a handful of kilometres and you are immediately catapulted into the Pollino National Park. Its historical centre is interesting, standing on a rocky outcrop, characterized by a network of narrow streets and alleyways with arches that open, from time to time, to the stupendous views offered by the lush valleys that form a backdrop to the Tyrrhenian Sea. On the medieval layout, unaltered, are the houses, built on sheer cliffs and leaning against each other. It is worth visiting the Museum of Taste and Popular Traditions, dedicated to Ippolito Cavalcanti, a duke who lived at the Court of Naples and author of an organic treatise on cooking that from the 18th century onwards constituted an excellent reference for manuals in the sector. In addition to the richness of its environmental and natural heritage, Buonvicino also boasts the extraordinary qualities of its religious, archaeological and agri-food heritage, and the local population still preserves traditions, songs and festivals of ancient origin, revealing a strongly rooted identity.
