What to expect
The Matera walking tour will take you on a discovery of the two Sassi, Barisano and Caveoso.
We will begin with a historical-architectural and anthropological introduction to the Sassi of Matera. We will then set off towards the “Civita”, the highest promontory of the Sassi, dominated by the Apulian-Romanesque cathedral.
Along the way, we will encounter two Baroque churches, the Church of the Purgatory and the Church of San Francesco d’Assisi. Continuing the Matera tour along Via delle Beccherie, we will reach Piazza Vittorio Veneto.
Here we will admire the 19th-century Ferdinandea fountain and the view of the Sasso Barisano. Next, we will enter the heart of the Sasso, originally the bourgeois quarter of the ancient city, to walk through the traditional alleys, stairways and narrow streets of the Sassi. At the bottom of the Sasso Barisano, we will visit a typically furnished cave house, a demonstration of how the peasant population lived until the mid-1950s.
We will continue the guided tour through the Sasso Caveoso district with a visit to a rupestrian church, completely excavated in the rock and a treasure trove of Italo-Greek monasticism with precious iconographic evidence from the 10th-13th centuries.
The walking tour of Matera ends with a tasty light lunch based on typical local foods and a tasting of three glasses of wine.
