If you happen to be there on July 2nd–which out of sheer serendipity, I did–you will find the townspeople apologetic for closing down some of the tourist sites and attractions. No matter, because you have in store for you a far better attraction: the Feast of the Madonna della Bruna. She is the patron saint of Matera, and the town goes all out to celebrate her for one day each year. The celebration is one of the more unusual and fantastical that I have experienced.
