Approaching Storm, Matera, Italy, July ’13

Aside from Petra, Jordan, Matera is the oldest continuously-inhabited settlement in history. The caves visible in the top right portion of the picture above, are considered Palaeolithic and are located across the ravine from Matera’s ancient centre. More photos of Matera from this trip:
