THE PROVINCIAL ARCHAEOLOGICAL MUSEUM
The Archaeological Museum of Basilicata in Potenza is definitely worth a visit. Located to the north of the town centre, it contains numerous interesting artefacts, ranging from the prehistoric age to Roman times.
THE DUOMO CATHEDRAL OF SAN GERADO-POTENZA
The Cathedral of Potenza was originally built during the 12th century in Gothic style and then restored in a neo-classical style in the 18th century. The cathedral still houses the rose window and the apse from the original 12th-century structure and inside the cathedral lie the remains of Saint Gerardo, the patron saint of Potenza.
NATURE RESERVE OF LAKE PANTANO DI PIGNOLA
Located a few kilometres from Potenza, the Lake of Pantano di Pignola spreads out into a valley surrounded by mountains. The lake was formed by an artificial dam in an area of meadows and cultivated fields. The nature reserve is home to a variety of wildlife including Foxes, Weasels, Beach Martens, Hedgehogs and Shrews. The habitat provides a perfect environment for birds and the reserve is home to many beautiful species including Grey Herons, Moorhens, Egrets, Widgeons, Teals and many other species of duck, Great-Crested Grebes, Kingfishers and Lapwings.
