What you'll do

We will make an excursion in the Park of the Rocky Churches of Matera, a walk to discover the hidden treasures of this incredible territory. Guests will be picked up from the meeting point near the old town and taken to one of the access points to the natural park. Along the 2/3 hour long route, immersed in a wild and rich nature will meet caves, rock churches, prehistoric shelters, geological formations and archaeological evidence of the past. We will take a walk in nature and visit places that are impossible to reach if you do not know the paths. Along the way you will be able to take extraordinary photos, don't worry if you don't have a camera or you only have a mobile phone, some photos I will take and I will send them to you via email. The route is circular, returned to the starting point the guests will be returned by car to the initial meeting point.

Giambattista

I have a degree in Geological Sciences, a photographer for over 30 years and for several years I have studied and researched aspects related to the landscape, history and prehistory in the territory of the Murgia of Matera. Two years ago I founded a company with which I promote the territory of Matera and Basilicata on the web through a tourist portal. Through the website www.matera.cloud we offer information on the city of Matera, on economic activities and on what it is possible to do and see. With the experience gained over the years, after hundreds of excursions and 400 gigabytes of photos taken, I think I can offer a unique, diversified and compelling experience in a majestic landscape, discovering fascinating and hidden places, rich in natural and historical sites and archaeological where to take memorable photos.
