In Basilicata there is the longest Tibetan bridge in the world: where is it located? In Castelsaraceno, in the province of Potenza, in the southern part of the region.
With only 1256 inhabitants, a number destined to grow given the important news, Castelsaraceno will certainly become a destination not to be missed for tourists from all over the world who will come to this corner of the Lucanian territory, enclosed between the Pollino National Park and the regional park of the Lucanian Apennines.
The 586 meters long bridge connects the cliff of Castelveglia and the Raparo massif soring over the Racanello stream. It is an experience dedicated to strong hearts: to cross the bridge you need to walk 1160 steps suspended in the air at 80 meters high.
The project, carried out by two Lucanian companies, the Geofond of Policoro and the Geovertical of Lauria, had a cost of one and a half million euros, an investment totally covered by regional funds, and is part of a varied tourist offer made up of excursions to do trekking, cycling and paragliding.
The Tibetan bridge, which had the opportunity to have Aaron Durogati, the champion of extreme sports as testimonial, offers children a climbing wall to practice free climbing while the climb that leads to the Grotta Scasciata is reserved only for brave ones.
