Convicinio di Sant'Antonio

Traditional house Matera, Italy

Visit the suggestive Convicinio di Sant'Antonio

Located in the Casalnuovo district, the Convicinio di Sant'Antonio is made up of four churches built between the 12th and 13th centuries: a portal with an ogival arch leads to the courtyard overlooked by the rock environments dedicated to San Primo, Sant'Eligio (or dell'Annunziata), San Donato and Sant'Antonio Abate. Each of them shows traces of adaptation to new uses since, between the end of the eighteenth century and the first years of the nineteenth century, they lost their function as places of worship; there are millstones that were used for the production of wine and cellars located on the lower floors.
