Sarconi

Sarconi, comune della Val D’Agri, sorge nella piana attraversata dal fiume Maglia la cui sorgente è situata sul monte Sirino e confluisce nel lago del Pertusillo. Le distese pianure e l’abbondanza di acqua ne hanno fatto un importante centro agricolo per la coltivazione dei rinomati fagioli a marchio IGP. All’ingresso del paese si trovano i resti dell’acquedotto Cavour costruito nel 1867.
 
Sarconi has ancient origins, as evidenced by numerous archaeological finds, especially burials found in the area. Probably the area was already inhabited during the Roman period, but only after the destruction of Grumentum began to develop a house.
The few ruins of the castle, built on a hill in a secluded, probably as a fortress to control a strategic area, are evidence of the feudal era when Sarconi passed by in feudal overlord to the revolutionary laws.
 
Initially farmhouse of Saponara Grumento, current Grumento Nova, towards the end of 400 was a fief of the Sanseverino family, by living the ups and downs and becoming almost a reward to the loyalty of the family to the crown of Aragon, passing to the other lords when this was lacking . He then went to the ’600 Pignatelli lords of Marsiconuovo.
 
The historic center, through which wind narrow streets, alleys and squares is characterized by noble buildings with portals and stone facades that blend well with wrought iron balconies.
Here is located the Mother Church, dedicated to Santa Maria Assunta, built after the earthquake of 1857, on a place of worship of Renaissance origin. A nave contains a wooden statue of Our Lady of Montauro, Patroness of Sarconi.
 
I Fagioli di Sarconi

Sarconi da il nome ai suoi rinomati Fagioli a marchio IGP. Sono un prodotto tipico lucano di eccellenza, alla base della cucina della Val D’Agri.

In agosto nel comune si svolge la sagra dei fagioli un suggestivo tour gastronomico, attraverso i caratteristici vicoli del centro storico, dove degustare numerose pietanze, rigorosamente a base di fagioli, preparate nei modi più svariati da alcuni ristoranti della zona.
