Basilicata, August 2014
Matera is a historic city in the south of Italy. This city has been nominated European Capital of Culture 2019.
Sassi Matera is an ancient human settlement . The chatacteristics of this area are the houses dug into the stone hillside. Narrow pathways create a labyrinth which cuts through the village.
Visiting the stone houses and climbing up and down the narrow winding path is a surreal experience.
