The tour of Maratea starts from the highest part of the city: Mount San Biagio. Here you can admire in all its beauty the statue of Christ the Redeemer, the symbol not only of the city of Maratea but of the whole region of Basilicata. The second largest statue in the world as a dimension after Christ of Rio de Janeiro, the statue of Maratea is 21 meters tall, with a 19-meter arm opening and a face measuring 3 meters. The statue was made of reinforced concrete covered with a mixture of white cement and Carrara marble and created by the artist Bruno Innocenti in 1965. After admiring the Christ, the visit continues in the nearby Basilica of San Biagio, patron saint of the town. The tour continues in the medieval village, with ancient houses with arches close to each other and divided only by narrow lanes and characteristic lanes that fociano in small squares paved in local stone.
