This monastic complex is one of the most important monuments in Matera and is composed of dozens of caves spread over two floors. Chiesa Madonna delle Virtù was built in the 10th or 11th century and restored in the 17th century. Above it, the simple Chiesa di San Nicola del Greci is rich in frescoes. The complex was used in 1213 by Benedictine monks of Palestinian origin.
