Monticchio Lakes

Appearing in the midst of the green vegetation of Mount Vulture, Monticchio Lakes is one of the oldest volcanoes of Southern Italy. As you approach the water, you will realize that you are next to one of the most precious gems of Basilicata. It is surrounded by rich flora and fauna, and if you drive up to the hill to the Abbey of San Michel, you can see a stunning panorama of this sacred place below.
