What to expect

Enjoy a tour to the Crypt of the Original Sin, an unmissable stop during your stay in Matera!

The Crypt is one of the most ancient testimonies of the rupestrian art of Southern Italy. Its extraordinary cycle of frescoes, realized 500 years before Giotto, highlights the typical features of the Benedictine-Benventine art. For its theological and artistic value, this cave-church has been defined as the 'Sistine Chapel' of the rocky wall painting.

Your driver will take you to this unique location where you'll enjoy your visit. Find out more about the importance of the place from your audioguide and learn all you need to know about the crypt's art and history.
