This is Craco...a splendid "ghost town".
Craco looks like a sculpture of medieval origins surrounded by the "Calanchi". Destroyed in 1963 by a landslide, it forced the local population to abandon the village.
What is left of the old town can be seen with a guided tour, along a safe route, which allows you to travel the main course of the village, until you reach what remains of the old main square and enter the core of the ghost town. Of Craco Vecchia remain the stone houses clinging to the rock and between them stands the Norman tower in a dominant position on the ancient village. The structure of Craco Vecchia, whose houses are perched around the tower that dominates the center, dates back to between 1154 and 1168, becoming an important military strategic center during the reign of Frederick II. Despite its abandonment, the village is rich in visitors.
