Features and historical curiosities:
Entirely excavated in the rock, it overlooks the large shared terrace with a nice view of the Sasso Barisano, the Civita and the beautiful Cathedral. The arches in tuff, the rock and the original fossils of shells (dating 2 millions years old) enhance the charm of staying in a cave with the latest comforts and services. Excavated in the Middle Ages, it became the main storage of the Abbots of the adjacent Church, San Pietro Barisano, the biggest Rock Church of the Sassi. After the Abbots lost the property of the Palace, every room was assigned to a family. The last family that lived here was named”Senza Nidd” and they used to live here until the 1950s, years of the evacuation of the Sassi area. The nickname Senza Nidd in dialect means “Without anything” as the head of the family was orphan and poor.
