Sextantio Le Grotte della Civita | Superior Room

Room Description

The Sextantio Le Grotte della Civita project is situated in the historical heart of Matera.

18 caves have been restored through a careful and conservative process conducted with the utmost respect for the local cultural heritage. Each cave reveals the original shape and materials.

The hotel’s interior design, the respectful and minimalistic approach of Sextantio is reflected in the plain furniture elements.

The guests will experience a particular atmosphere evoking the cultural and human history of the Sassi of Matera.

Each cave is unique with its design and features.
