Istituto Sacro Cuore (BRM103)

Matera Basilicata
Book Now

House of the Suore Riparatrici del Sacro Cuore

This is a lovely stay in a truly picturesque town. The charm of an ancient Roman era shines through as you explore Matera, and this monastery acts as the perfect base for this quintessential experience.

Matera is famous for its churches and beautifully historic appearance. 'Sassi di Matera' is a UNESCO World Heritage Site - an ancient city, which was one of the first known human settlements in Italy, over 9,000 years old. It is the main attraction in the town, and a stone throw away from the monastery. Experiencing Matera is as close to stepping back into ancient Roman times as possible - explore the caves and alleyways or bask in the sunshine at one of the great restaurants and take in the view - Matera is truly a fantastic experience. The Matera Cathedral is definitely worth a visit, as well as many of the other churches in the town, including San Giovanni Battista, the church of Sant Agostino and the church of San Pietro Caveoso (to name a few).

Customer Reviews

Sister Beena and her nuns were very welcoming and helpful.
- QLD, Australia (January 2020)
I totally adore the Sisters and the place! Truly a loving place! I was greeted by all these adorable children ad their teachers as I arrived on a week day and the teacher was kind and helped me with my suitcase over the few stairs at the entrance. Sr Beena was incredibly kind and attentive. She even opened the door for me an evening in which I arrived later than my usual time as it was hard to get across the crowd after a concert in the main piazza. The breakfast was lovely and I felt so create for. I love to hear the sisters praying and chanting in the morning and walking up to the swallows flying over my window. It was an absolutely amazing experience. I hope I am so blessed that I can return one day to spend a full week or more as I love the magic of Matera, its people and its art. I feel deeply grateful!

A very pleasant stay. Simple but very good standard of accommodation. The Sisters were very helpful and most hospitable.

Very pleasant and friendly staff.
- ACT, Australia (May 2019)
Excellent guest house, good position close to the Sassi for tourists. Breakfast mainly sweet cakes, etc. but this is usual in Italy. Very quiet, I was the only one there.
- Victoria, Australia (April 2019)
The sisters were very friendly and helpful, and the location was great - walking distance to the station, the sassi, and the Centro Storico. The bed was quite firm but comfy, and the room was squeaky clean.
