Tibetan Bridge – Castelsaraceno
The longest Tibetan bridge in the world: 586 meters long and 80 meters high
The Tibetan Bridge of Castelsaraceno, in the province of Potenza, is the longest Tibetan bridge in the world with its 586 meters in lenght.
It is built 80 meters above the ground, in mid-air over the canyon crossed by the Raganello stream and it is also known as “the bridge between the two parks”, as it is connecting the Pollino National Park with the Appennino Lucano Val d’Agri Lagonegrese National Park.
Inaugurated in 2021, the Tibetan bridge is a great attraction where visitors can immerse themselves in the pristine Lucanian hinterland, between the beautiful city of Matera with its “Sassi” and the sea of Maratea on the Gulf of Policastro.
An impressive piece of engineering and an absolutely unique experience, to be crossed at a slow pace and suitable for everyone.
Castelsaraceno is known as the heart-shaped hamlet or the hamlet between the two parks. Built in 1031 by the Saracens as a lookout, it was destroyed about ten years later by an earthquake. After being abandoned by the Normans, the Basilian monks transformed it into a thriving farmhouse.
