Scanzano Jonico

Description

An important center with an agricultural tradition and vocation, which recently has become an established resort of the Ionian coast in the province of Matera. Scanzano Jonico gained its administrative independence from the nearby town of Montalbano Jonico, only in 1974. Located in an area inhabited since ancient times, the village developed only in the Middle Ages, under the supervision of the Basilian monks of St. Elias di Carbone (a small town of the Pollino area). Over the centuries the town submitted the domain of Pedro de Toledo and several other feudal families.
