Commune in the province of Matera

The origins of Craco date from the VIII century B.C. It is mentioned by the name of ‘Graculum’ in official documents of 1188. In the XV century, it was a feud belonging to Attendolo Sforza di Cotignola.

Interesting is the ‘Borgo antico’, the old centre, which at present time is uninhabited, due to a landslide which forced the inhabitants to move to the towns of Craco-Peschiera and Craco-Sant’Angelo in the 1970s.

Spectacular ravines (‘calanchi’) can be admired near the town. There are also a lot of springs of mineral water.

The area is mostly agricultural and cereals and olives are the most widespread crops.
