ITALY - The Sassi and the Park of the Rupestrian Churches of Matera

"This is the most outstanding, intact example of a troglodyte settlement in the Mediterranean region, perfectly adapted to its terrain and ecosystem. The first inhabited zone dates from the Palaeolithic, while later settlements illustrate a number of significant stages in human history. Matera is in the southern region of Basilicata." -http://whc.unesco.org/

Thank you so much Edo for this wonderful postcard!
I've read once that this is the place where the movies "Ben Hur" and Mel Gibson's "Passion of the Christ" was filmed.
