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 Pinacoteca Giuseppe De Nittis. Let the collections at Laboratorio della Cola Cola - La Casa della Cola Cola and Museo Archeologico Nazionale Domenico Ridola capture your imagination. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Matera: Gravina Sotterranea (in Gravina in Puglia), Castello Svevo di Barletta (in Barletta) and Cattedrale Maria SS. Assunta (in Bitonto). There's much more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Chiesa del Purgatorio, contemplate the long history of Piazza San Pietro Caveoso, make a trip to Piazza Duomo, and get to know the fascinating history of Casa Cisterna Sotterranea.
