Commune in the province of Matera

The original name of the town, ‘Bollita’, was replaced with the present Nova Siri in March 1872, on request of the town council, to commemorate its origins as an area belonging in the time of Magna Graecia to the Siritide region, whose old capital was Siris.

In the town centre it is possible to admire the Castle and the characteristic lanes of the ‘rione Porticella’ characterised by the ‘lamie’, intertwined arches with cross vaults.

The mother church dedicated to Santa Maria Assunta, with a façade in Baroque style and a bell tower rebuilt in 1866, after the collapse caused by the earthquake of 1857, is remarkable. The ruins of the ‘Villa Imperiale del Cigno dei Vagni’, the oldest construction in the area, are still visible.

‘Marina di Nova Siri’ is a seaside resort with wide sandy beaches and a limpid sea; the promenade is bordered by pine woods equipped with refreshment facilities and a long path which can be used for walking or cycling. There are also holiday villages and camping sites.
