Subterranean City

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. Step off the beaten path and head to Chiesa del Purgatorio and Piazza San Pietro Caveoso. Get out of town with these interesting Matera side-trips: Castello Svevo di Barletta (in Barletta), Gravina in Puglia (Gravina Sotterranea & Laboratorio della Cola Cola - La Casa della Cola Cola) and Cattedrale Maria SS. Assunta (in Bitonto).
