Fodor's Review

Matera's cathedral was built in the late 13th century and occupies a prominent position between the two Sassi. It has a pungent Apulian-Romanesque flavor; inside, there's a recovered fresco, probably painted in the 14th century, showing scenes from the Last Judgment. On the Duomo's facade the figures of Saints Peter and Paul stand on either side of a sculpture of Matera's patron, the Madonna della Bruna. At the time of writing, the Duomo was closed for a long-term restoration.
