About Castelmezzano

Castelmezzano is an enchanting town carved into the Dolomiti Lucane range and surrounded by towering karst peaks. It dates back to the 6th century and combines medieval charm with dramatic landscapes. Entering the village is a highlight, with the road passing through a tunnel carved into the rocks. Explore the medieval town centre filled with steep staircases and winding alleys, hike in the mountains and indulge in delicious regional cuisine.

Things to do in Castelmezzano

Church of Santa Maria dell'Olmo overlooks the square and features an impressive stone façade and an interior decorated with paintings by 17th-century master, Pietrafesa.

The high-speed Volo dell'Angelo zipline stretches between Castelmezzano and the neighbouring village of Pietrapertosa. The name translates to “Flight of the Angels” and treats you to spectacular views over the mountains.
