Miglionico

Miglionico is a historic hilltop town, overlooking the Bradano and Basento valleys. The picturesque old town was partially destroyed by an earthquake in 1980, however it has been mainly rebuilt since then and boasts beautifully restored houses alongside stunning historic churches that have somehow remained untouched.

Miglionico Castle rests strategically on its hilltop location and is widely known as “The Castle of the bad council” for having hosted the conspiracy of the barons in 1485. The Castle was expanded in the 12th and 14th centuries and its easily recognisable with its seven impressive towers and unusual parallelogram shape.
