A picturesque town of Byzantine Greek origin that has become one of the tourist centres of the Vulture, Rapolla is a charming stop on the road to Potenza. Its small winding streets and its Romanesque cathedral are its strong points. The centre is also dotted with modest churches, the most interesting of which is the Chiesa Santa Lucia dating from the Norman period. It is quite well preserved and has a central nave covered by two small domes. The Basilian monks who arrived in Rapolla in the 10th century also left rock sanctuaries on the hillside. Finally, people come to Rapolla for its thermal waters whose therapeutic and preventive virtues were discovered in 1909.
