Woooooouuu that's all there is to say! ??? A lovely place! Valsinni is waiting to be discovered. Immersed in greenery. The ancient town presents itself with its flagship... The castle of Isabella morra. A poet Isabella Morra was born in Favale (today Valsinni) in 1520, the town is wonderful and very characteristic because of its villages and alleys. Every evening you can eat under the castle where there is a typical restaurant with Lucanian cuisine (but what am I telling you?! You eat very well!) during dinner you will be "accompanied" by the classic music of the minstrels (which I love) they give that extra touch. They play live on a small stage adjacent to the restaurant overlooking the main square. They ring from 10pm until 11.30pm/midnight sometimes. Very nice overall! At the end of each show, a projector displays the story of Isabella Morra on the facade of the castle ???✌️ beautiful, there's so much to see. Then there is also an ice cream shop and a pub always adjacent to the square where they make cocktails, sandwiches and drinks of all kinds. A place to stay in company and be immersed in the village! ?✌️? Both families and not. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND. the locals are wonderfully hospitable, friendly.

It’s nice but a serious up hill walk to get to just a few rooms available to the public who pays 3€ to enter. It looks much more interesting from afar in my opinion. The view is a different perspective of the valley which is nice to see.

Topography of Terror

The Topography of Terror (Topographie des Terrors) is an outdoor and indoor history museum. It is located on Niederkirchnerstrasse, formerly Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse, on the site of buildings which during the Nazi regime from 1933 to 1945 were the headquarters of the Gestapo and the SS, the principal instruments of repression during the Nazi era.

The buildings that housed the Gestapo and SS headquarters were largely destroyed by Allied bombing during early 1945 and the ruins demolished after the war. The boundary between the American and Soviet zones of occupation in Berlin ran along the Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse, so the street soon became a fortified boundary, and the Berlin Wall ran along the south side of the street, renamed Niederkirchnerstrasse, from 1961 to 1989. The wall here was never demolished.
