  • The Benedictine Abbey of San Michele, all to ourselves, a large stone book from pages worn, but true. History, art, religion ... mystery, in silence broken only by the voice of the good net Guide. It was because of the day's gloomy and gray, anonymous? Terri and I only visited the entire Abbey, including the underground for an hour! In other parts of the world, with much, much less, hordes of visitors. Enzo & Terri Trani

  • A huge structure that has great possibilities, to be retrieved quickly before decay too. Large spaces to be valued as a cultural center, University or business incubator ... Matera docet. Beautiful views of surrounding valleys saddles

  • What a lovely place! The best part is the agricultural museum with an excellent guide! She will give you the perfect picture of how the life used to look like in the past! Bellissimo posto! Specialmente il muse de l'arte contadina con la splendida guida che vi porterà in dietro nel passato! Un posto da visitare!!!
  • Beautiful monastic complex, of which it was not possible to visit the library and the Church due to renovation work

  • A few kilometers from the Sassi di Matera and the Ionian coast stands in an old town not yet completely abandoned, the magnificent Abbey of St. Michael the Archangel built by the Benedictines around the year 1000. Its strategic position dominates and controls much of the territory materano and tarantino, its two cloisters welcome tourists in a silence, and you don't seem inconsistent, deafening, his frescoes evoke a past of the culture in which it was reference to Pythagoras, Aristotle and great thinkers depicted in now strips the Benedictine library. A few meters from it because of their importance and their beauty the Church of Santa Maria in Platea, little gem with frescoes dating back to 1400, the former convent of the Poor Clares with dizzying ceilings, the mother church where are paintings by Mattia Preti , the main course, the scene of many events, including the appalling murder of Joseph Novello, during the occupation of the lands, and the Church of San Rocco in piazza Roma, which a local reporter called it proudly, in the years ' 50, "the city". Without forgetting, then, the Capuchin Convent, the pine forest, an oasis of peace, and the huge wild space called "la defense" with Mediterranean vegetation and vegetation rich in ancient perfumes.

  • The site visit was very interesting. The Guide drove us into the places for over an hour in a strict and precise chronological tale. Too bad it was not possible to access the Abbey closed at requests since time and probably for the next few years.

  • Definitely useful, why read the comments and watch the pictures of ordinary people helps us to really understand if the place or the area which we are informing can actually fit within our tastes.
