A loop around Matera to reach the plateaux with a great view over the Sassi district. The Murgia is also known as the Park of Rock Churches.
Not far from the visitor centre you will find the ruins of a Neolithic village.
On the way back to Matera, stop and visit the “Cava della Palomba”, an old stone quarry from 3 centuries ago converted into a contemporary art exhibition area.
