C takes us to Craco Vecchia

Not everyone’s taste, but for lovers of the long deserted, the abandoned, the atmospheric ruin…this was the place for me

First sighting – the old town appears, rising up from the scrubby, olive-tree dotted plain:

We drive closer, and park up in readiness for the purchase of our Craco day ticket, and guide to escort us. The ruins are every bit as atmospheric as I had hoped:

…the birds

Sightless windows, Craco





  1. Definitely your kind of place, Sue. 🙂 🙂 It looks great in that first shot, up the hill.

  2. Great photos,Sue. I especially like that last one. Fabulous ruins!

  3. I remember a couple of these, but they are just as enjoyable the second time. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

  4. The images conjure up past glory and mystery. Thanks!

  5. that’s a place for me,too, Sue

  6. What an interesting place to explore!

  7. Definitely brooding. Especially the monochrome shot.

  8. Are you focusing on Italy then Sue? I remember photos of this place, one of your favourites and very atmospheric. Looks quite challenging physically though.

  9. A kind of place one dreams of visiting and exploring! I appreciate seeing it from different angles and that shot in monochrome with birds above – wow!
