Italy Matera - Cathedral

  • Please log in or sign up for free to see the GPS coordinates & weather for this photo spot
By design, the cathedral dominates Matera from both a navigation and photographic perspective. It was built for Emperor Frederick II of Swabia with work completing in the late 13th century. The most recent restoration was done this century and it was re-opened in 2016.
There are large fragments of stucco painting from the early 1600s and even a nativity scene dating from the 16th century.

Photography Tips
