MATERASUM, AN UNDERGROUND CITY

MateraSum is an hypogeum recently rediscovered and open to public since 2016.

The site is extended on a surface of 1200 sq.m. and is 12 meters below the ground level.

It is a system of locations and tunnels located in space and time from the Middle Age until today, with several uses.

It’s a time travel, an extraordinary experience, Matera history narrated in a single place.

An underground city…caves, paths, cisterns and places of worship.

Visits last about 30 minutes. Before the descriptions provided by an audioguide there is a brief video projection about the history of the city.
