What to expect

Experience a suggestive walk through Matera, a modern city still stuck to its origins. Accompanied by an expert guide, you'll explore the most picturesque corners of Sasso Caveoso, one of the Sassi di Matera, UNESCO World Heritage Site and European Capital of Culture 2019.

You will firstly enjoy a breathtaking view over the whole city overlooked by Cathedral bell-tower. Then walk through the Sasso Caveoso district and see its characteristic cave buildings which have been inhabited since Palaeolithic times. Visit the church of Saint Pietro Caveoso, whose Baroque facade belies a much older history. To really connect with the region's ancient inhabitants, you will get the chance to visit a furnished cave-house (casa-grotta) decorated according to local traditions. You will be enchanted by the beauty of the frescoes inside the Church of St. Lucia alle Malve, one of the most interesting cave-churches of the whole area. Marvel at this remarkable spectacle of urban development frequently used by great directors like Pier Paolo Pasolini and Mel Gibson as a unique setting for their masterpieces.
