Suggested itineraries for Matera
Trekking on the murgia. Madonna degli Angeli
Visiting the Sassi of Matera and the Archaeological Park of Natural Rock Hewn Churches means getting lost in the paths of an ancient and rocky landscape of huge charm. Man has lived in this area for hundreds of thousands years by setting up in the steep walls of Gravine (canyons). From Piazza di Porta Postergola, in the districts of Sassi, you can go towards the most fascinating hill of the Park where, set in the rock, you can visit the church of Santa Maria degli Angeli where you can still see rock frescos and architectures.
