Day 2 - Across the Alta Murgia National Park - the Moors
Move inland to the Unesco Heritage site of Castel del Monte, an outstanding example of Medieval architecture. Passing over the Alta Murgia and through Gravina you will reach Matera, known for its "Sassi". The Sassi are houses dug into the tuff rock itself, which is characteristic of Basilicata and Puglia. Many of these "houses" are only caverns, and the streets in some parts of the Sassi are often located on the rooftops of other houses. The ancient town grew in height on one of the slopes of the ravine. The ravine, that was created by a river but is now a small stream, is known locally as "la Gravina". Dinner on your own and overnight at your Hotel in the Sassi district.
