PDF Print E-mail


The water collection system is only the final part of a long system of underground channels, created in 1846 thanks to Monsignor Di Macco to provide of the water needed of the entire population of the Sasso Caveoso.

The system of communicating vessels allowed the settling of rainwater, which were collected from roofs, streets, neighborhoods and even the water collected from the hills near the castle.

This environment also includes a visit to the birthplace of St.John of Matera, born between 1070 and 1080. This house later became a church and then became the sacristy of the church known as "the Old Church of Purgatory".
