Departing from the Sassi di Matera is a circular excursion itinerary that plunges into the heart of the ravine of Matera, zona di riserva integrale e quindi grande pregio naturalistico e archeologico. Per la presenza di diversi pronunciati dislivelli e di due guadi sul torrente è adatto ad escursionisti esperti. Of particular interest are the rock sites of Cintomelone and Madonna di Monteverde (with extraordinary terraced Mediterranean gardens dedicated to the breeding of bees for the production of wax and honey) e una monumentale cisterna per la raccolta delle acque piovane. The leitmotif of the itinerary is the extraordinary botanical richness with particular reference to the riparian vegetation along the riverbed of the ravine stream.
