Town of Matera, South of ItalyCATEGORIES
The UNESCO ancient town of Matera is probably one of the most famous destinations in Italy. It has gained international attention and fame thanks to its old town, known as “Sassi di Matera”. Habitations, churches, and monasteries, were carved inside the caverns of Matera’s rocks. In the 1950 the government forced the population out if the old town and relocated them in the New Matera. Visiting Matera is a must if in Italy, especially during Christmas time, when actors enact a living Nativity Scene.
