Our Epic Earth: Craco, Italy

2015/01/img_3287.jpg

Located in Southern Italy, Craco was abandoned over time due to natural disasters. Craco has a long history of being taken and reclaimed by various groups and nations but in the last century its main worries became less war-focused and more nature-focused.

Evacuated due to a landslide in 1963, a flood in 1972 and finally an earthquake in 1980 that lead to the town’s abandonment. The town, which hosted the filming of The Passion of the Christ, is now a ghost town.
