  • Craco was already a fantastic country in the days when it was inhabited, a village perched on a rocky spur with an overview of the entire Valley. Abandoned today offers visitors a panorama still intact but derelict, which creates a magical atmosphere and eerie at the same time, however there are many tourists that come from far away to admire this ghost town.

  • We visited this ghost town and it was a unique experience. In order to do that, you have to buy a ticket, cost 10 euros each, and be accompanied by a guide, in our case Innocent, that after I delivered a helmet takes you all the way ready to answer any question he is place. It is advisable to book the visit as it alone cannot be accessed because it is all fenced and locked. Particular experience that makes you think.

  • Craco vecchia is a deserted village, after a landslide. Very impressive for this set of many Italian and international film, visiting the area you are immersed in a timeless reality, in an area destroyed by nature but above all by men.
