    Feeling Sassi

    ... area on one side of a rocky canyon with numerous cave and stone dwellings, where inhabitation is said to date back almost 9000 years.

    Our little AirBnB accom was great, one of three BnB rooms, it was simple yet quirky and decorated in a beautiful manner! No sooner had we arrived, we thought it time to go and find something to eat, about 100m away was a lovely square with a few nice little restaurants, and we managed to find a table under an umbrella and sat ...

    ... was pleased.

    While getting gelato for dinner an Italian American man from Jersey – evident by his tattoo and hair covered arms and chest bulging from his worn wife beater – chatted us up. His father was with him and grew up in one of the trullis back in the 30s. I asked him what a winter was like and he shook his head and said, “not easy.” They had no running ...

    Dear god, Matera has 180 churches; 40 of which are in the Sassi. My favourite was the Church of Purgatory which was decorated with skulls and skeletons.

    Interesting walk around the Sassi this morning. However, the local ...

    Our hotel, Le Grotto della Civita, sits right on the edge of the ravine in the most ancient Sassi area and our 'rooms' are caves. But not just any old cave! Beautifully restored and tastefully furnished, this is truly a memorable place to stay.

    A long travelling day on the bus today. We left Rome relatively early on the A1 past Naples and Pompeii. Lovely views of Salerno on the way. Arrived in matera, the place where Mel Gibson's Passion of the Christ was filmed. A very old town inhabited by the Capodochians, all built into the rock. One of the poorest places as late as the 1960's when the government removed people ...
