Spiritual world.

An awesome experience. The crypt, speechless, very charming. Excellent example of rock Church. I think it is one of the most important given the Byzantine-inspired frescoes depicting a Madonna in a door-shaped gown representing for us men the entry and exit of this world.

Amazing frescoes, describing scenes of Genesis
paź 2019
Located a few miles outside of Matera, this cave in the side of a ravine has well preserved (and beautifully restored) frescoes on the walls, that represent various aspects of the Bible, mostly of the Creation, the expulsion of Adam and Eve from Paradise, and the life of Jesus Christ. Guided tours are the only way to see the cave, to protect if from the depredations of careless visitors. Photography oi forbidden. Tickets can be purchased at a nearby winery, which is also the location where the tours start.

this church is a place i have heard of and studied for years. one of the most important and earliest frescoed churches of the early christian period in southern italy. there si a fascinating presence in this place and a real sense of continuity with the place and it's surroundings. important to book online before it is just 20 minutes outside of the center of matera!

The Crypt of Original Sin is a very unique place . specific to the Matera region of Italy. - Dwellings, churches- all in the carved in caves that have been inhabited since prehistoric times, through Roman times, middle ages - to now. Not to be missed by travelers to Basilicata.

Our favorite site in Matera area
paź 2019 • Znajomi
Yes, you have to reserve tickets in advance. Yes, it helps to have a car to drive the 14k south of Matera. Yes, you need to wear some slightly funky headphones for the English translation. But it’s SO worth it. A beautiful 700 meter walk past fields and olive trees to get to the cave area. Amazing 9th C frescoes with an unusual floral ground motif weaving throughout, along with a compelling story of young local historians who re-discovered the cave in 1963 after years of looking for the “Church of 100 Saints.” Its both the quantity and quality of the frescoes that makes the site so special.

Amazing place and so worthwhile to visit
paź 2019
Even if you are not religious, you will feel the sanctity of this church where the monks worshipped in the8th Century. The artwork is so special and tells us about the history of the time. It is a hidden gem. You must reserve and to do so online is very simple. Photography within the church is not allowed but you can see photos on their website. So beautiful.

This is an amazing site, but it takes planning to get to see it. You need a reservation and it helps to speak Italian.

Visit this unconventional "chapel" with an open mind
cze 2019 • Pary
Don’t expect to see any signage pointing you to the Crypt of the Original Sin (Cripta del Peccato Originale) because the general public are not expected to just show up and be allowed in. The ancient cave of worship is actually owned by a local winery, F.lli Dragone Agricultural Company, about 15 minutes drive from the Sassi. If you'll have your own car, it’s not that difficult to locate the winery and joining a tour is unnecessary. Pre-booking online is a must because they only allow limited number of visitors into the cave at any one time. I booked mine one day ahead for their earliest admission at 9:30 am (maybe it wasn’t quite high tourist season yet?) for 10 euros, but i’d recommend booking much more ahead if it’s on your must see list. They provide very clear driving instructions with coordinates of meeting location on the booking website, we had no problem finding it using google map. After we checked in at the winery (at least 30 minutes before the admission time), we were given an English language audio guide with headset. About 5 minutes before our admission time, we were led by the guide in his minivan to the location of the cave nearby. Once inside the dark cave, we sat on the big rock and the broadcast of Italian commentary began soon after. My headset was synced with the Italian commentary, unfortunately, I experienced constant static with my headset and I found it somehow annoying. (At least one other visitor complained that his headset wasn’t working at all.) Regardless, i found the commentary to be very informative and really admired the frescoes (a style very unique to Matera but don't expect them to be as refined as the Classical style of painting commonly seen in other European religious institution.) Photos were not allowed inside the cave, but when the commentary was over and the natural light was let into the cave, visitors were allowed to view the frescoes up close for a few minutes and the visit ended there. I opted to go back to winery to check out some of the packaged pasta and wines they have on sale. In my opinion, the frescoes of this crypt are better restored than the ones found inside Chiesa di Santa Maria di Idris (Church of Saint Mary of Idris – between 3 to 4 euros admission) located in Sassi. Overall, i’d recommend visiting the crypt. Because of the issue with the headset, I can’t give it an excellent rating.

Disappointing
cze 2019 • Pary
Firstly you have to find the place and you need to use your gps with the coordinates no sign on the road ! Then it’s Group visit in Italian and a possibility of translation if the audio system is working which was not the car. Then you will spend 30mn in a grotto with great frescoes but not in a very good condition. Wondering when they close the site to protect it !
