- Sasso Caveoso Area
During the walking tour which lasts approx. 2 hours, our professional guides will show you the Sasso Caveoso area, the most fascinating part of our old town, named “Sassi”.. In this area iT’s possible to see how houses rise from the rock.
- Film locations (with films such as Mel Gibson’s The Passion of the Christ, 2004)
- Cave dwelling with old furniture
Its furniture and tools give evidence of how daily life was organized here in the Sassi. Usually a single place was used, at the same time, as habitation and stable for animals. A family compound of 11 people (with animals) lived here until 1956.
- The rock church with frescoes inside
It is the first monastic settlement of Benedictine order and is very important in the history of the town. The church has been deeply transformed: evident architectural signs show the richness of this crypt. Of great historical-artistic importance are the frescoes which still partly adorn the walls.
