What to expect

Discover the beautiful city of Matera on a self-guided tour of the city; just download the app OYO app and learn all about the exclusive sites you'll have access to, completely on your own without having to wait for groups or guides. First, you'll have the opportunity to enter Palazzo Bernardini Ferraù, one of the most stunning historical palaces of Matera. Not only is this exceptional location home to gorgeous decorations and furniture, but it also holds amazing pieces of art from different time periods and styles. Here you'll meet the owner, the marquess Anna Rosa Bernardini Papalia, who will be your unique guide in the course of the experience.
Apart from visiting the Rupestrian Churches Madonna delle Virtù and San Nicola dei Greci, San Pietro Barisano and the catacombs, as well as the Palombaro Lungo, you'll get to enter Casa Noha, the cultural, historical and genetic symbol of the inhabitants of the Sassi: because of the tuff structure, the vaulted ceilings, the delicate carvings and the frames, the building is today a perfect example of the unusual architecture of the area.
In the caves of Sasso Barisano and Sasso Caveoso, you can visit the Casa Grotta, a house rebuilt with furniture and period furnishings. At the end of the experience, you’ll have the opportunity to meet the owner of Casa Grotta, Mr. Eustachio, and the surrealist painter Nicola Rizzo, who decided to create his workshop inside the Sassi.
