General opinion:  Matera is a World Heritage Site and a city in Basilicata, Italy. Located on a picturesque rocky gorge, it has a population of about 58,000 inhabitants. Matera is a perfect blend of cultural traditions and modern civilization and is famous for caves called Sassi.
The climate of Matera is highly variable with the summers and winters ranging from moderate to extreme. Rainfall is also highly irregular and appears in short showers. The best time to visit the city is in the months of May and July.
Created out of a rocky ravine, Matera’s existence dates back to the Palaeolithic ... More Age. Founded by the Romans, it was considered as a poor city till the eighties. However, recent development has made the city tourism-oriented; it is also a favoured spot for shooting feature films. Agriculture and furniture are the other dominant industries.
