Basilicata holidays

The ideal base for exploring the Basilicata region is Matera, where dwellings are carved out of the mountainside and have been used as houses and churches for the past thousand years. Take a leisurely walk through the Rock Churches Park and discover the treasures of the Rupestrian civilisation. Visit the Rupestrian sanctuary of Madonna delle Tre Porte, which formed the location for Golgotha in Mel Gibson’s film The Passion of the Christ.
