Historical palaces

The ancient palaces tell of the history, the style, and the role of the most famous families of the City of the Sassi.
In Matera, among the many architectures that reveal its past, persisting in the present, the historic palaces certainly stand out.
Among the most important in Matera are the 17th-century Palazzo Lanfranchi, home to the National Museum of Medieval and Modern Art of Basilicata, close to the Piazzetta Pascoli square, in addition to the Palazzo del Sedile, which overlooks the square of the same name and which houses the city’s Conservatory dedicated to the musician Egidio Romualdo Duni.
The “Tommaso Stigliani” Provincial Library is also located in the Palazzo dell’Annunziata, in the central Piazza Vittorio Veneto square.
