preservation and renovation of 18 caves in the heart of Sassi.

Sextantio Le Grotte della Civita, the Matera is an accommodation project created to propose an experience of unique hospitality, not classifiable as "stars" and far from any traditional concept of luxury, so much so that, the New York Times judged him among the most extraordinary destinations in the world, the Times among the ten most beautiful hotels in the international scene and Tatler guide Condé Nast has included among the hundred most beautiful hotels in the world.
In 1993 UNESCO declared the Sassi of Matera world heritage site, allowing you to enhance the uniqueness and the uniqueness of these places, where the houses are mixed with rock or open into large caves, some of which Christian monks of the Middle ages realized rock churches, monuments that still today, after centuries, they return their beauty.
In the city, the oldest part of the Sassi, in the caves overlooking overlooking the Gravina River, facing the dramatic scenery of the Murgia Park and its rock churches, Sextantio has made Le Grotte della Civita, a unique resort hotel with eighteen rooms in huge caves, characterized by an extreme conservative restoration, using only secular recycled materials, from floors to furniture, to the linen coming from ancient wedding meltdowns.
