Valerie’s sister Cara was here to visit for two weeks and we took her south to Lucania to visit their distant relatives and to see some of the unique sites that this part of Italy has to offer. We spent two days in Matera and I find this city to be fascinating as it seems to change hourly and by your location in and around the sassi. We had blue skies, rain, fog and clear nights…all within 48 hours. Despite this being our third visit to this unique provincial capital I find there is more to see with each visit. In my opinion this city provides some of the best photographic opportunities you will find anywhere.
This series of photos were all taken within a span of 48 hours and all are of the same civita portion of Matera…just from different angles.
