An idyllic cityscape of the maze of alleys and stone houses in the historic heart of Matera known as the city of Sassi stock photo

An idyllic cityscape of the maze of alleys and stone houses in the historic heart of Matera known as the city of Sassi An idyllic cityscape of the old town of Matera, in southern Italy, known worldwide as 'Sassi di Matera' (Matera's Stones). On the horizon stands the majestic facade and the bell tower of the Duomo, or Cathedral of the Madonna della Bruna and of Sant'Eustachio, built in the Apulian Romanesque style in the 13th century. The ancient city of Matera, in the region of Basilicata, is one of the oldest urban settlements in the world, with a human presence that dates back to more than 9,000 years ago, in the Paleolithic period. The Matera settlement stands on two rocky limestone hills called 'Sassi' (Sasso Caveoso and Sasso Barisano), where the first human communities lived in the caves of the area. The rock cavities have served over the centuries as a primitive dwelling, foundations and material for the construction of houses, roads and beautiful churches, making Matera a unique city in the world. In 1993 the Sassi of Matera were declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco. Wide angle image in High Definition format. Matera - Italy Stock Photo
