The town of Matera rises on a characteristic landscape of a deep ravine with overhanging rocks under which the Gravina stream flows.

This town has many faces, the most famous of which is certainly the ‘Sassi’, which the UNESCO has recognized as ‘humanity's patrimony to hand down to future generations’.

The ‘Sassi’ are dominated by the Cathedral of Mediaeval Age, and they lodge inside them the suggestive Museum of the Peasant Civilization.

All around Matera, in the ‘Murgia’, there is the Park of the Rock Hewn Churches.

San Francesco D'Assisi Church, situated in the homonymous square, and San Domenico Church, located in Vittorio Veneto square, are also beautiful.

The Tramontano Castle stands on a hillock not very far from the historical centre.

The Domenico Ridola Archaeological National Museum, which is close to the main square, is lodged into the buildings of the ex-monastery of Santa Chiara.

The feast of the ‘Madonna della Bruna’, which traces back to 1389, is celebrated on the 2nd of July.
