The Sasso Barisano

We are in the Sasso Barisano, the heart of the ancient town of Matera, which extends along the slope of a deep ravine. The Sassi, whose origin is lost in the sands of time, are groups of ancient residences, dug out from the tufaceous rock, and they follow the irregularities of the ground, creating a very picturesque landscape. Only apparently 'disorganised', the Sassi conceal sophisticated technical solutions and as a whole they form a complex urban fabric.
