Matera is a magical, fascinating ancient city that would be a one of a kind destination wedding location if you are looking for a unique natural setting for your own one of a kind wedding experience.
The ancient city of Matera is home to the famous “Sassi” which have been a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1993 and European Capitals of Culture for 2019. The Sassi provide a stunning backdrop of stairways and narrow lanes, cave-houses carved out of the rock, rock churches with beautiful frescoes, and elegant buildings.
Walking through this beautiful and unique city you will soak in the history by visiting the many churches and museums in this ancient city steeped into history and art or go to the Park of the Rupestrian Churches, which consists of more than 150 rock churches.
The mayor of Matera is now performing LEGAL civil ceremonies at the Old Covent of Santa Lucia & Agata, recently renovated overlooking the Sassi of Matera.
