Restaurant Antica Pesa, in the heart of Magna Graecia at the eleventh-century Castle of San Basilio.
The Castle of San Basilio
On a small hill, between the Basento and Cavone rivers, in a dominant and central position in the heart of Magna Graecia, stands the castle of San Basilio, in the Pisticci (Matera) district. It was built as a fortified farm around the seventh century by Greek-Byzantine monks, also called Basilians, who settled in this area of southern Italy after the death of Basilio di Cesarea (379 AD), to proselytize and to devote themselves to the cultivation of the land.
