Sasso Caveoso, an area south of the old town of Matera known for its cave dwellings, boasts some of the town's finest rupestrian churches hewn out of the rock, which are adorned with remarkably preserved frescoes. To the south-east of the area, in Rione Casalnuovo, the Convicinio di Sant'Antonio (12C) comprises four churches overlooking a courtyard. Also of interest is Santa Lucia alle Malve, a church carved out of the rock in the 9C which boasts some magnificent frescoes (13C-17C).
