the Terrace

A magical corner of the palace, it is as if suspended over the ancient quarters and labyrinthine streets built over the centuries. From here you can enjoy a privileged view of the Sasso Barisano and the Apulian Romanesque cathedral that dominates the entire landscape.

In spring and summer it resounds cheerfully with the crickets’ cries, symbolic animals of the Parco della Murgia Materana, small migratory birds of prey that dance in the Matera sky.

In autumn and winter, it listens mute to the silent echo of the millennial history it faces with its typical chimney stack, embellished with a fossil shell, a link with the land from which it comes.

Quiet and warm in the morning, it welcomes guests who wish to have breakfast outdoors or simply read a good book about Matera.

The perfect venue for a typical sunset aperitif, from which to admire the city’s night lights.

It also offers the ideal intimate setting for sipping a glass of wine in the evocative evening atmosphere of the Sassi.
