Castelmezzano, Italy (THE BEST TRAVEL PHOTOS)

The origins of #Castelmezzano date to approximately between the 6th and 5th centuries BC. In the 10th century AD, the Saracen invasions forced the local population to find a new location. It is said that during the exodus, a pastor called Paolino discovered a place to move, formed by rocks from the steep peaks which could repel the invaders by means of rolling stone boulders on to the invaders. #Basilicata Potenza
