  • Montescaglioso, known in ancient times as Civitas Severiana (from Alexander Severus who fortified and dominated the center), the country took the name of Mons Cabeosus probably derived from the numerous caves exist in the area. It was originally a Byzantine fortress, only to see the succession of different feudal families. Montescaglioso had its initial development around the Abbey of St. Michael the Archangel (1079), rich in beautiful frescoes. Interesting is the mother church of the fifteenth century. dedicated to SS. Apostles Peter and Paul in whose interior contains many paintings of the Venetian school. Noteworthy are also the church of Santo Stefano with pre-Renaissance portal and the church of the Madonna delle Grazie in Romanesque style.

  • Immediately after the fall of the regime the political activity of the country shooting with force and returned to be felt those discontent present always in the minds of citizens, linked to usurpations of state owned lands and to the presence of the large landed estates with its relations of production based on abuse. Certainly deserve a visit the Mother Church, the Benedictine Abbey of San Michele Arcangelo, the Norman Castle and the Sanctuary of the Madonna of the Murgia, the most important church of the rocky heritage of Montescaglioso. Tradition and taste characterize the cuisine of Montescaglioso, one of the "city of oil" lucane. It is no coincidence that on the table montese never lacks the extra virgin olive oil DOP lucano, extracted mostly from the pressing of the olive Maiatica Ferrandina, which makes it soft and fruity flavor, used in most typical dishes. Excellent also the production of products in oil such as tomatoes, aubergines and artichokes. The rich menu includes the typical house made in house, dominate orecchiette and cavatelli, beyond sheepmeat and goatmeat grilled, and then the so-called "Cialledda", a soup based on bread, onions, olive oil, pecorino cheese and pepper. All of this, obviously, watered by excellent local wine, especially on the occasion of the enogastronomic "In Vino Veritas".
