The Historical Natural Park of the Rock Churches of Matera, known in Italian as ‘Parco Regionale della Murgia Materana’, stands like an impressive soft-rock sculpture marked by deep ravines, gorges and caverns.

Also known as the Park of the Rock Churches, it consists of more than 150 rock churches, a treasure trove of astonishing religious and cultural heritage. Thanks to its natural wonders and historical places of interest, the Park has become the perfect venue for music concerts and spectacular environmental and cultural events, which are organised throughout the year on these outstanding outdoor stages.

The peculiar morphology of the area makes it possible for the park to host “en plein air” events and initiatives, for both adults and children. Some of these are really unique and exciting, such as the literary and sound trekking, which consists in a walk along the ancient drovers’ roads, breathing in fresh air and the charm of ancient tales.
