I remember it as if it were yesterday / 12

I had read of the abandoned town of Craco some years ago now, and  determined to see it when I found out that it was possible to visit.

Sightless windows, Craco

Main street, Craco

I can still see myself taking these images, walking around this place…and wishing I had seen it when it was less decayed, let’s say 30 years ago



  1. Beautiful, but so sad. Do you know why it was abandoned?


  2. I remember some of these, I’m sure, But they are great, and well-worth a second look. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. The people may be gone, but what remains is still telling stories.
    (Looks almost SciFi setting now. )(Great images – nature textures everything)

  4. So very much your kind of place, Sue. Love the one with the balcony 🙂 🙂

  5. What????? Sue wanting less decay????? My world is falling apart! A wonderful collection of photos. My special favourite is the last one.

    • Sue

      Teehee, I said less decay, not no decay…and the reason being – I would have seen tantalising evidence of human occupation…now, you just guess at it. So your world has now been put back together, Meg! And that last image is one of my very favourite images from that trip…..

  6. Great shots of this once beautiful, now horribly distressed place, Sue. Your photos make it look quite beautiful though.

  7. Wow, an incredible place! I have never heard of it. Will google it to see how far it is from me. I love the last two photos! Art!

  8. How sad to be driven out by landslides.

  9. I love the stories these abandoned buildings tell. Beautiful, Sue.

  10. Such a treat to see your photos of your visit 🙂
