Matera

This description page of Matera, in the Italian region of Basilicata, will guide you in planning your trip to Italy and help you find useful travel information about this Italian city.

 

Matera is one of Southern Italy's most charming cluster of localities. Dug into the tufa are the Sassi and villages, the Roman and Baroque churches, the noble buildings and the more recent swanky neighborhoods.

This city still bears the unique signs of prehistory and history and the Sassi. The ancient quarters of Matera and the facing Murgia Plateau are now inscribed on the World Heritage List on behalf of UNESCO, as a patrimony belonging to all mankind.
