Palizzi, a Journey Through Time

“No wilder,  nor more extraordinary place than Palizzi can well greet artist’s eye” – Edward Lear, 1847

The medieval village of Palizzi, squeezed between the rock and the torrent, is located at the bottom of a valley surrounded by a landscape of rocks and old ruins that emerge here and there between the vegetation.The eye focuses automatically on the huge rock overlooking the town. At the top of this rock, there are the ruins of a medieval castle. Unfortunately only a few people still live in Palizzi Superiore all year round. They produce a fine wine and follow the quiet rhythm of the old days.
