Basilicata

Basilicata Basilicata also known as Lucania, is a region in the south of Italy, bordering on Campania to the west, Apulia (Puglia) to the north and east, and Calabria to the south, having one short southwestern coastline on the Tyrrhenian Sea between Campania in the northwest and Calabria in the southwest, and a longer one to the southeast on the Gulf of Taranto on the Ionian Sea between Calabria in the southwest and Apulia in the northeast.
The region can be thought of as the "instep" of Italy, with Calabria functioning as the "toe" and Apulia the "heel".
The region covers about 10,000 km2 and in 2010 had a population slightly under 600,000, the regional capital is Potenza and is divided into two provinces: Potenza and Matera.

Basilicata brings you back on touch with nature, offer ancient villages, medieval castles, fascinating churches and one of the most striking Unesco site: the Sassi.
