The properties of the K*- meson in dense matter are studied using a unitary approach in coupled channels within the framework of the local hidden gauge formalism. We obtain the K*- spectral function in the nuclear medium and we found that the K*- develops an in-medium width up to five times bigger than in free space. We also estimate the transparency ratio of the \gamma A -> K+ K*- A' reaction, which we propose as a feasible experimental scenario to detect in-medium modifications of the K*- meson.
