In the southern part of Italy in the historical town of Matera, are world famous cave-dwellings. Carved thousands of years ago, these caves that were once homes and churches have recently been turned into a contemporary tourist hotel. Designed by Manca Studio, 300 square meters of cave-dwellings were developed and restored to create a common area, a spa, and 4 suites for the La Dimora di Metello Hotel. Each room of the hotel is in the grotto style and features walls made from tuff (a rock made from volcanic ash) and plaster to compliment the existing texture of the cave walls.
