Diocesan Museum of Matera

The Diocesan Museum of Matera is located near the Cathedral of the Bruna and has been built in ancient renovated rooms of the Diocese.
The museum itinerary unfolds in a “journey back in time” that starts from the present day and reaches the origins of the Matera Church, consisting of three large rooms that house works of sacred art, in particular silver, dating back to the 11th and 19th centuries. Among the objects housed there, visitors should turn their attention to the enkolpion or pectoral cross dating back to the mid-11th century.
