In the Archaeological Park, you can visit the Roman baths, remains of private Roman houses, and the amphitheatre. Archaeological excavations have also brought to light a patrician house of the 1st century AD, called “the House of Horace,” Jewish catacombs containing a series of hypogea discovered in 1853 (the presence of a large Jewish community is attested to by numerous remains), as well as a Palaeolithic site dating to 600,000-300,000 years BC. Little of the Lombard castle remains, while the massive structure of the Aragonese castle, begun in 1470 by Pirro del Balzo, still watches over the daily life of this ancient borgo.

On the western tower, the “Del Balzo” coat of arms can be seen, depicting a blazing sun. This rugged castle, with its four cylindrical towers, was later transformed into an elegant residence by the Gesualdo family, particularly Carlo, who was defined by Torquato Tasso “the Prince of Musicians,” and by Carlo’s son, Emanuele. Those rooms which echoed with Carlo’s wonderful madrigals also hosted, towards the end of Carlo’s life, the refined intellectual court of the “Academy of the Rinascenti” (1612). But the true symbol of Venosa is the Unfinished Church of the Trinity, an evocative stone jewel, which seduces the observer with its very incompleteness. The abbey complex of the Most Holy Trinity, of which the Unfinished Church is part, was begun in the 5th century, when the Old Church (Chiesa Vecchia) was constructed upon the remains of a Roman temple.

Among Venosa’s many churches there is also the Cathedral of Sant’Andrea, with its nave and two aisles modulated by pointed arches, begun in the second half of the 1600s, the 17th century Church of San Filippo Neri, and the famous church dedicated to San Rocco for his having liberated the city from the plague of 1503. In the borgo you will also admire many artistic fountains, among the most beautiful are the Angevin (1228), the Messer Oto (1313) and the 15th century San Marco fountain.
