Today the Sassi of Matera offer visitors an incredible natural landscape: from the rupestrian buildings that were excavated by men, to the rupestrian churches (including Santa Maria de Idris - San Giovanni in Monterrone, Santa Lucia alle Malve and San Pietro Barisano churches) and burial areas that dating back to various eras: Middle Ages, Renaissance and baroque until modern times.

In the central square of the city, Piazza Vittorio Veneto square, there are few openings that show the original level of the sites, the hypogea, that are located under the square level. The hypogea connect, forming a real underground city connecte with Sassi. You can find here some of the exceptional rupestrian buildings, such as the large cistern known as "Palombaro Lungo", with 15 meters high walls and navigable until recently.

The historical center, also, develops with streets that connect different squares through a long axis called "asse settecentesco", thanks to its form that was defined from the end of the 15th century. In the center of Matera are concentrated buildings and churches that had a particular importance throughout the history of the city.
