  • A very impressive and unique place where you can feel the history of art and religiosity of men adapted to live in places that are carved into the rock.

  • Is part of a trio of churches included in one ticket. Does not differ greatly from the other, entirely carved out of the rock with some frescoes are still visible.

  • Stunning frescoes in the Sassi
  • Fascinating frescoes. Interesting dwelling that was a church and a home.
  • Ok
  • Excellent place from which to observe the scenery of matera. It is a little complicated to get there, and it is not clear from the outset that it is an ancient cemetery. Very impressive

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.
