Marvel at this remarkable spectacle of urban development frequently utilized by great directors such as Pasolini and Mel Gibson.

Then go into the heart of the Sasso Caveoso and view the unique and beautiful cave buildings which have been inhabited since Palaeolithic times. Visit the church of San Pietro Caveoso whose Baroque facade belies a much older history. To really connect with the regions ancient inhabitants enjoy the unique experience of a visit to a furnished cave-house (casagrotta) decorated according to ancient traditions.
