Basilicata, also known as Lucania, is a region in southern Italy, located between the regions of Apulia, Campania and Calabria. This lesser known but fascinating region will delight you with its wild natural beauty, historical monuments and authentic atmosphere.

The capital of Basilicata is Potenza, but the most important and touristic town is Matera. Matera is famous for its "Sassi" - ancient cave dwellings carved into the limestone cliffs. These unique structures are a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and Matera was named European Capital of Culture in 2019.

The landscape of Basilicata is predominantly mountainous and rural, with Pollino National Park being the largest protected area in Italy. The park offers breathtaking scenery, hiking trails and rich biodiversity, making it an ideal place for nature lovers and outdoor activities.

Basilicata's gastronomy is simple but tasty, with an emphasis on local ingredients. Typical dishes include "peperoni cruschi" (dried and fried peppers), "lagane" (a type of pasta) with chickpeas and various types of sausages such as "lucanica".

Basilicata, with its rich history, beautiful nature and authentic traditions, is a hidden treasure of Italy worth discovering.
