Riding in Basilicata:
Land of ancient origins where history and nature have left important traces since the prehistoric era, the Basilicata – also known as the old name of Lucania – is still a destination little frequented by traditional tourism and well lends itself to being discovery on horseback, slowly, to fully enjoy its unspeakable beauty.
Contention between East and West, with the white beaches And the turquoise seaThe villages carved into the rocks, parks and castles perched on top of mountains shrouded in silenceBasilicata is a landscapedly fascinating land which also boasts a historical and artistic heritage very respectable, far from the usual stylistic canons.
To encourage a type of slow tourism,in the name of the green, as can be equestrian tourism, play the extremely pleasant climate,local cuisine and folklore rich in Mediterranean influences and thehospitality of itspeople. Riding in the midst of lush nature or on the rolling hills of small villages, in perfect harmony with the landscape, is a dip to the heart for those who want to live an authentic and all-encompassing experience with Basilicata and its people.
A short walk from the Stones of Matera The riding enthusiasts I can appreciate nature, history and art territory with trekking on horseback varied kinds and long-term difficulties trails and mule mounds leading to Neolithic villages, cave churches, ancient farms And breathtaking landscapes.
Of rare beauty the scenery offered by the Historical and Archaeological Regional Nature Park of the Murcia Materana,engraved in the gravines with cultivated areas and some survival of the Mediterranean bush, the Pollino National Park (between Basilicata and Calabria) and the National Park of the Apennine Lucano (between Val d’Agri and Lagonegrese), authentic havens for fans of equestrian tourism and country riding. Hiking and horseback riding in the regional parks in Lucani,in particular that of the Cave Churches of Matera,and the area of the Vulture and lakes of Monticchio,for years area of redevelopment for a new regional park.
