Sassi di Matera, Basilicata, Italy Featured The Sassi and the Park of the Rupestrian Churches of Matera Print

Sassi di Matera, Basilicata, Italy

Lonely Planet describes Matera as 'Italy's most extraordinary town" due to it's incredible old town, the Sassi (i sassi). These stone houses, built into the rock and caves, were once home to a poverty stricken population, often living without running water. It wasn't until the 1950's that the Italian government started to relocate the population.The section in this photo is only a fraction of the sassi, which covers a large area.The Sassi was made a UNESCO world heritage site in 1993, and has since been making a slow revival, and is now full of bed and breakfasts
