    A real Apulian Romanesque style church from the 16th century. Renovated but with maintenance of stylistic references. Two portals on the long side, one for the people one for the nobility. Steeple added later

    As it should be a church ... Essential austere and silent. No excesses only sobriety. So should be all the churches. The façade is reminiscent of the Mexican churches of many years ago.

    A beautiful church in the heart of matera, with a vaguely Gothic! Is an atmosphere of peace and contemplation as in churches. Unfortunately this has undergone some liturgical adaptations Modernists. Definitely recommended!

  • Just sign in, you are catapulted back in time. Medieval chants, and feel the walls have nanny story. Highly recommended!

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.
