St. Nicola dei Greci is a rock hewn church of the ninth century of Byzantine rite.

The church is divided in two naves and it contains frescos of great importance: Santa Barbara and San Pantaleone of the twelfth century and an important St. Nicola of the fourteenth century. In this church is possible to admire a precious crucifixion of the fourteenth century. In the fresco there is the representation of the sun and of the moon and there are also painted the daffodils that grows in the Murgia Park, flowers symbolically linked to the death. There are also two other saints represented, St. Peter Martyr and St. Anthony Abbot, two saints very venerated from the people.

This church is part of a rock hewn complex that hosts the most important annual exhibitions of contemporary art of Matera.
