Famous for its resemblance to the ancient settlements of Jerusalem and Cappadocia, Matera remains one of the oldest inhabited cities in the world.
Get some cultural insight at Gravina in Puglia - Cattedrale and Antica Matera Casa Grotta.

Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Matera: Castello Svevo di Barletta (in Barletta), Cattedrale Maria SS. Assunta (in Bitonto) and Gravina Sotterranea (in Gravina in Puglia). There's much more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Cattedrale di Ruvo di Puglia, appreciate the extensive heritage of Casa Cisterna Sotterranea, make a trip to Piazza San Pietro Caveoso, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Chiesa del Purgatorio.
