Description

Tour to the Crypt of Original Sin

The Crypt of Original Sin in Matera is an exceptional oratory that represents one of the oldest examples of rupestrian art in southern Italy. Its extraordinary cycle of frescoes, created five hundred years before Giotto, highlights the typical features of Benedictine-Benevan art summarized stylistically by the Lombard cultural temperament (8th-9th centuries). Because of the theological and artistic value of the pictorial compendium, the cave-church has been called the Sistine Chapel of rupestrian wall painting.

Highlights:

  • Transfer from/to the Crypt of Original Sin (with departure from Matera)
  • Sistine Chapel of Southern Italy;
  • Audio Guide.

In detail:

The guide will be waiting for you in Via A. Volta 5, Matera, and from here you will reach the mini bus that will take you to the Crypt of Original Sin.

The Crypt of Original Sin is the oldest and most evocative evidence of rupestrian art in southern Italy: a cave used as a church in the 9th century AD by Benedictine monks, completely frescoed by the skilful hand of the “Flower Painter of Matera.” Rediscovered as far back as May 1963 by a group of young Matera enthusiasts, from a shelter for flocks, The Crypt of Original Sin has become one of the must-see stops on a visit to the European Capital of Culture 2019 .
