SS 407 - Nova Siri Scalo: Nature route

Discovering the Ionian coast passing through the Pollino National Park


The route starts from Tursi, the city of Albino Pierro to which the Literary Park is dedicated, located in the middle of two great rivers of Lucania, the Agri and the Sinni. Not far from Tursi, the Sanctuary of Santissima Maria di Anglona, elected a national monument since 1931. Its Romanesque-style portal and bell tower are splendid. Inside, the church has a Latin cross shape and has three naves divided by arches and pillars. Crossing the heart of the Pollino National Park, in the valley crossed by the Sarmento river, a tributary of the Sinni, we find the small town of San Costantino Albanese.
Crossing the Pollino National Park you reach the Ionian coast and the town of Nova Siri, formed by a “marina”, a few hundred meters from the sea, and a “historic center” located about 10 km inland.
