The town of "Sassi"


The "Sassi" of Matera is the first site all over the world that has been declared "Cultural Landscape" and has been listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site since 1993.

This ancient town resembles a "giant sculpture", made of tangled alleys and staircases, cave dwellings and elegant palazzos, arches and balconies, gardens and wide terraces, all dug into the rocks of a deep gorge, named "Gravina" after the stream that flows on the canyon floor.
