In Matera, you’ll spend a lot of time in caves. You’ll visit them, eat in a cave, drink an aperitivo in a cave, and have a Yoga session there!

The ancient neighbourhoods, known as Sassi, are a series of grottoes carved out of limestone, teetering on the edge of a ravine.

This southern Italian city is one of the most unique and spectacular places to be visited in Italy.

For years Matera wasn’t well known to foreign visitors, but that has been changing since it became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1993, and a European Capital of Culture in 2019.

We will stay in a beautiful Venue during the retreat surrounded by nature in  Montescaglioso.

Montescaglioso is an important historic and cultural village situated 30′ minutes far away from Matera. It’s known as the City of Monasteries for the presence of four monastic ensembles, among which stands out the Abbey of San Michele Arcangelo.
