A Unesco World Heritage Site since 1993 for its Sassi, Matera was built out of light-coloured stone on the top of the Murge plateaux. The historic centre looks down over a deep ravine at the bottom of which flows a river. The town rises in successive layers of small buildings, cut out of the rock, painting an unusual picture. This maze of tuff stone dwellings has been largely restored to the delight of visitors.
