Matera is a unique city that’s known for its ancient cave dwellings, or "Sassi," that date back to prehistoric times. The UNESCO World Heritage-listed Sassi districts, Sasso Caveoso and Sasso Barisano, captivate tourists with their raw beauty and intricate limestone formations. Today, these caves house restaurants, shops, and accommodation, making Matera a city like no other.
