The Hotel is located very close to the Archeological Park of Murgia. The Park, which is characterized by the presence of many Rupestrian Churches, covers 8,000 hectares in the municipalities of Matera and Montescaglioso.
It shows us distinctive tall cliffs, waterfalls (like the Jurio), trails around rare flora (including ancient species), ravines and natural caves used by humans since prehistoric times. The Park also presents dozens and dozens of settlements, like Villaggio Saraceno, and about 150 rock churches; the most interesting is: Cripta del Peccato Originale, also known as the Grotta dei Cento Santi with its superb 9th-century frescoes depicting episodes from Genesis.
The Cripta is one of the most significant pieces of Italian wall art. The park’s natural settings offer lovely trails through cliffs, caves, waterfalls, and rare flora.
