Craco Italy Italy

Craco is a truly sublime look at classic medieval Europe. This quaint little town is located 25 miles inland at the far South of Italy. The landscape is filled with gentle rolling hills covered in golden wheat and other crops. The town had its start in 1060 and the land was initially owned by Archbishop Arnaldo, which would influence the development of the town. Unfortunately earthquakes, war, and landslides scared inhabitants away from the town. Today tourists visit Craco to admire the remains of the city. Multi-story stone condominiums still stand, while other structures have grass overtaking them or entire walls falling down, allowing a unique look into the structure of these ancient homes.
