Matera is the European capital of culture for 2019. It could be the best occasion to visit it and discover a wonderful place where time continues to flow slowly.
The Sassi are two ancient districts: Sasso Baresano and Sasso Caveoso. They have been partially built and partially excavated in the soft stone, starting from the 8th century. In the middle of them, a small hill called Civita.
The Civita is dominated by the Duomo, the ancient cathedral and by what remains of the old medieval castle.
But beyond the words what really does the difference is the air that you breathe in Matera. It’s the beauty of the view, the breathtaking panorama; the astonishing buildings carved in the stone. You must be there to really understand. And we will love to be with you, to explain you the story and culture of this wonderful place.
