With the Lucanian Dolomites as a natural backdrop, Castelmezzano is a municipality in the province of Potenza and among the most beautiful treasures of the Basilicata region. The spectacular scenery presents itself as soon as you arrive into town. Through a tunnel dug into the rock, after passing an evocative gorge, Castelmezzano appears as a small Nativity scene perched on and protected by the mountains.
From Castelmezzano, you can reach the village of Pietrapertosa, and return to town by flight, in the true sense of the word. The adventure called “Flight of the Angel” is an unusual experience, but one that is full of excitement. Harnessed and hooked to a steel cable, not only can you enjoy the thrill of really flying for a few minutes but, above all, you can take in a view that is mostly reserved for the bravest.
