MATERA, THE CITY OF STONES
And ‘the city of the Sassi, the original urban core, developed from natural caves carved into the rock and then shaped into increasingly complex structures within two large natural amphitheaters that are Caveoso and Sasso Barisano.
The Sassi, the ancient districts carved out of stone, the entrenched villages and stone churches of the Murgia give the feeling of being in a crib and live in another era.
In 1993 UNESCO declared the Sassi of Matera a World Heritage Site.
