The heart of the Vulture. Along with Melfi, Rionero was the site of the first Norman settlement. Destroyed by the earthquake of 1694, it was later rebuilt. Today its name is associated with that of Giustino Fortunato (1848-1932), a rich collector and active politician who bequeathed his palace to the town. Nearby, the Chiesa Madre (late 17th century) is decorated in baroque style. From Rionero, it is also possible to reach the top of the ancient volcano Vulture and, from there, contemplate one of the most beautiful panoramas of the region. The craters are occupied by the lakes of Monticchio, surrounded by forests and bordered by the Abbey of San Michele and the ruins of Sant'Ippolito.
