Calanchi Lucani

A trip to the enchanting moonscape in the more undiscovered Basilicata, the “Calanchi” valley, and up to Craco, also known as “the ghost town”. The old settlement was completely abandoned in the ‘60s due to quick landslide. Since then the place has kept a mysterious atmosphere. Transfer to the Crypt of the Original Sin, a 9th century church named the “Sistine Chapel” of Rock Churches. On the walls of a deep cave we can still admire the oldest frescoes among the ones in rock churches in the area.
