The Grand Canyon? It is in Puglia: in Laterza one of the most spectacular natural gorges in the world

Deep in the heart of the ravinearea, Laterza’s ancient rocky landscape features a geomorphological formation that developed between 60 and 1 million years ago. Numerous archeological finds testify to the presence of humans in the area.

Laterza, the heart of the “Terra delle Gravine” Regional Natural Park, is roughly 50 kilometers (31 miles) away from Taranto, nestled between the Murge of Santeramo, Altamura, and the rocky caves of Massafra and Mottola.

In this wild paradise, the birthplace of the 11th-century Apennine civilization, there are 30 churches and many dwellings dug into the rock and tufa stone, some of which have yet to be explored.
The rupestrian churches generally face onto the various gullies that merge into Via Concerie and are today the streets that flank the deep ravine. Of particular note are the rocky church of  San Giorgio, the rocky Crypt Cantina Spagnola Crypt and the rocky Church of Cristo Giudice.
