Restored ancient caves in the village of Matera, a UNESCO World Heritage site in southern Italy, Sextantio Le Grotte Della Civita offers guests a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience. The cave rooms have integrated traditional design made from local materials with a minimum of contemporary amenities. Visiting the Sassi of Matera means having an out-of-time journey through the traces of the uninterrupted presence of the man in this area, from Paleolithic times to the present.
Through the many extraordinary sceneries of Sassi, you will spot the main stages of the evolution of human history: from the dark caves of Murgia to the rock churches of religious communities and from the elegant streets of the Piano rich of seventeenth-century monasteries and palaces to the descent, almost unreal.
The unique location used to be a village where hundreds of caves were turned into dwellings, churches, and palaces. The earliest inhabitants date back to the stone and bronze age, and in the middle ages it boasted several monastic communities, and later became a vibrant farming center.
Sextantio Le Grotte Della Civita offers 18 unique and elegantly furnished rooms, ideal for leisure, families, or businesses.
