CASTELLUCCIO INFERIORE

Situated on the edges of the Pollino National Park, Castelluccio Inferiore lies in the Mercure Valleys on a spot where the ancient Tebe Lucana stood and was eventually completely destroyed.

History

One often identifies the places where the Medieval village is positioned with the site of Tebe Lucana or Merulum, built by the Osci and destroyed by Taranto.

It was a fief of the following families: Sanseverino, Palmieri, Cicinelli, and the Pescara di Diano who ruled it until the subversion of feudalism (1806).

For a long time, its historical vicissitude was linked to that of Castelluccio Superiore, from which it separated at the beginning of the 19th century.
