Magnificent underground structure. It was practically an underground neighborhood, which included housing cisterns, granaries, furnace, crypt, etc. The ticket costs 5 euros, they will provide you with an audio guide that will explain everything you are going to visit in the underground.

The owner of the B&B I stayed in recommended I visited here, and I wasn’t disappointed. It’s a little off the beaten track and down a side street but google maps found it no problem. A really interesting underground system of caves with written descriptions in several languages giving you great insight into how the civilians of Matera used to live. I was lucky enough to visit when there was also an art instillation which added to the enjoyment of my visit.

it s 2019!not having a simple english translation to the acoustic guide offered only in italian does not only underestimates the value of the place but also shows a huge disrespect to all the foreigner tourists and a deep lack of touristic culture

This place is not well advertised and it could be a lot better than it is if they did guided tours. They have the option of an audio guide and there are written explanations but it is could be far better with an actual guide.
