Mama’s tips:

“Li Vurgacci” – This path, which winds through wooden bridges and footbridges, combines the beauty of nature with its proximity to the old town centre. It begins where the waters of the Potenza River cross Pioraco, in the place where a series of waterfalls, vortexes, pits and gorges, created from years and years of erosion, come to life, almost if by magic. Here there are also some rest areas where you can stop for a nice picnic.

Paper and Watermark Museum – Here you can have a rare experience, which consists in observing the hand-made creation of sheets of paper by the gualchiera, which will also allow you to witness the incredible use of tools and techniques typical of the 14th century.

River shrimp festival – In August, do not miss this event with food stands open for lunch and dinner, which pays tribute to one of the most incredible delicacies of the territory
– a crustacean of unique sweetness and flavour.

Souvenirs – Are you looking for a souvenir that will allow you to relive the town’s spirit? Then you have to buy one of the incredible filigree paper artifacts produced in the extraordinary Gualchiera Prolaquense.
