    We had the good fortune to be driven here up the winding road (i.e. a bit like Amalfi Coast) by local cousin. My deceased father often spoke of this religious site of his youth and our cousin indicated that in times past a people even walked there up the mountain without shoes on a pilgrimage. So no complaints of the drive. The stunning white basilica steeped in history rises unexpectedly in the middle of the forest and the view of the trees through the glass wall at the front of the basilica is breath-taking. The Black Madonna statue is striking. Mass was being held so we did not examine closely the interior. As everywhere in Italy we lit candles for our intentions especially a safe trip home. There are adjoining picnic grounds and a restaurant and a gift shop none of which we frequented as sun was setting soon. It's a bit off the beaten track but a bit different than the many myriad churches of Italy you might have seen.

    We started from prati di mezzo and walked to monte cavallo. As our dog was with us we were told it was best not to go on the highest mountain : monte meta,not to disturb the deers living there. But it was really beautifull all the same!!!

    The present church of S Lorenzo dates from the 1700s although the bell tower was built in the 1200s, indicating a church probably existed here from the first written mention of Picinisco 1000 years ago. Closed for 20 years after the earthquake of 1984, the church has been carefully restored although some of the ceiling frescos remain to be completed. It continues to be an important focus of village life and worship. All the statues which date from the 16 and 17 th centuries have been restored. The archive which dates back to the mid 1500s is an important source of geneological information. Worth a visit.

    A great day out. Unbelievable views of the mountains and the valley below while taking a risk free trip through the tree tops. Different levels of difficulty with helmets and safety equipment provided make this a lot of fun and good exercise. Thank you, Vincenzo.

    A great tour of the family winery, located in the beautiful picinisco countryside. We were given an engaging introduction to the history of the region and the family vineyards before being guided through the organic production process of the Maturano wine. Highlight of the trip was tasting a few different bottles and sharing lunch with the lovely family owners.
