PDF Print E-mail

Madonna delle Croci is one of the most important rock hewn crypts of Basilicata. Located in the heart of the Murgia Park is an example of high architectural rupestrian value. The church is composed of a unique nave decorated with suggestive crosses and rupestrian signs.

Precious gift of Byzantine art, the church has a beautiful fresco that represents  "The Virgin Queen", or "Kyriotissa of Matera" sitting on the throne with the blessing Child in her arms, an enchanting fresco totally preserved by time. Represented on both sides of the important fresco of the thirteenth century also the two archangels Gabriel and Raphael, as the inscriptions in greek denote : "Angelus Gabriel" and "Angelus Rafael." The scheme is of the Byzantine fresco of the Madonna in Majesty.
