  • This is a must see in the Sassi of Matera. The town is all wonderful and anywhere you go you will see a unique spectacle, full of history, culture, tradition, art and passion. This Cathedral is no exception and offers an amazing sight. Go and visit obligatorily!

  • Classic example of Baroque style together with St. Francis. Personally, I much prefer simpler, poorer churches, still worth a visit, especially for the belvedere out front.

  • Beautiful on the outside. Romanesque (Pugliese) influences arrived up to here. The most elaborate internal and external architecture as compared to non-dichotomous hits the austere Romanesque. Gorgeous.

Where to stay in Matera

Instead of booking your rooms at a conventional hotel in Matera, consider staying at one of the city's cave hotels. The rock settlements in this area are part of a World Heritage Site, and several local hotels offer lodgings at cave dwellings dug into the limestone rocks, complete with private bathrooms, satellite TV, air conditioning, and mini-bars. Alternatively, you can also stay at a small B&Bs or private inn in the old town, where you can explore most of Matera's main attractions on foot.
