The Mountain Festival is back

The 12th edition: landscapes, flavours and traditions of the country between the two parks

Autumn rhymes with mountain in Castelsaraceno: the eagerly awaited Festa della Montagna (Mountain Festival) returns at the end of October. This two-day event is dedicated to promoting the local heritage and mountain culture and aims to describe the present and future of the Castelsaraceno area in a collective tale. 

A rich calendar that presents all the best of this beautiful village on the slopes of Mount Raparo, nestled between the national parks of the Lucanian Apennines and Pollino: from food and wine to outdoor sports, environmental education and entertainment for the whole family.

Living in the mountains, a wise relationship between man and nature

The star of the event is Lucania’s natural landscape, significant not only for its undisputed beauty but also and above all for its intrinsic link with the lives of its inhabitants. A landscape recognised by the local community as a primary asset to be valued and defended – a veritable human and  environmental heritage made up of culture, traditions, economic and social organisations – of which the majestic longest Tibetan bridge in the world represents an important element, a physical and symbolic link between old and new and an inseparable bond between man and nature.

Nature excursions to discover the Lucanian landscape

The event, organised by the Pro Loco Castelsaraceno Association, is sponsored by the Municipality of Castelsaraceno, the Basilicata Region, the Parco Nazionale del Pollino and the Parco Nazionale dell’Appennino Lucano. Moreover, thanks to renewed partnerships with local bodies and associations, it is an important tool for promoting cultural and environmental tourism in the Lucano Apennines – Val d’Agri – Lagonegrese area, the foundation of local development.

Scheduled, as every year, for the last weekend of October, the Mountain Festival, in its twelfth edition, offers a rich programme of excursion activities and sports disciplines linked to mountain environments: guided visits to Mount Alpi and excursions to discover the Pino Loricato, symbol of the Pollino National Park, defined by many as “the dinosaur of trees”, as well as quad-biking and horse-riding excursions and environmental education activities for children and young people are planned for both days.

Between mushrooms and chestnuts: a journey through the autumn gastronomic specialities of Castelsaraceno

The main venue for the event will be the historic Piano della Corte square in Castelsaraceno, where the initiatives related to local food and wine culture will take place: the Fiera della Montagna, an exhibition/market of typical mountain products, the Sagra dei Sapori Autunnali and the Sagra della Montagna, with tastings accompanied by concerts and entertainment for all age groups. A unique opportunity to fully immerse yourself in the history and gastronomic culture of Castelsaraceno, discovering traditional dishes such as the Munnulata, an autumn soup of chestnuts, potatoes and beans, or the ‘Nzozara, a typical dish made with mushrooms, peppers, onions and tomatoes. A tradition made of simple and genuine ingredients, closely linked to the territory and an integral part of the identity of the wonderful land of Lucania.
