When you mention ancient caves, what do you think of? Shanding Cave, Mogao Grottoes... as the temple of human history. They are carefully guarded. However, ancient caves in Italy had a very different fate. Sextantio Le Grotte Della Civita., located in the northeast of Matera City, is such a hotel converted from a cave. This alias in the ancient city of Matera in Italy "Sassi" caves abound. These half-cave, half-hut structures are the work of prehistoric humans, who have lived here since the Paleolithic age, with the oldest caves dating back more than 2 million years. These rock dwellings hardly need to be repaired. They are densely layered on the mountain, and they can be seen from a distance. The mountains and rocks are colorful. The outer walls of the caves are made of soft volcanic rocks, and the caves are still warm in summer when the local temperature is 40 degrees. Keep it cool. The hotel has four floors and a total of 21 cave rooms. Don't think that you have to endure darkness and humidity to live in a cave. The ancients fully considered water, wind direction and lighting when designing.
