It's sassy in Sassi

A travel blog entry by joanna.rath

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

The Sassi reminded me of Fez medina. While the Sassi looks like a mass of houses, the house-like fašades are only that, as the 'houses' are dug well into the rock, thereby forming the caves Matera is famous for.
