The path of water and the Saracen Gardens

LUNCH INCLUDED. An extraordinary opportunity to discover, after a thousand years, a part of the history and origin of Lucanian traditions on the verge of oblivion.

As the Sassi di Matera, a few kilometres away, the Saracen Gardens in Tricarico are a monument of poverty and rural culture.
Consisting of terraced surfaces near the walls of the ancient settlement, under the Rabata and Saracena, the gardens descend in steep terrain towards the Valley of the stream below, named Milo.
The parcels are really unique in the whole area! They are bordered by stone walls of blocks of sandstone and connected by steep stairways and by channels for irrigation of Arab origins.
