The cavern hosts the cave church and is located at the foot of Minervino Murge on the north side of the town in a valley that bears the name of San Salvatore and is located at the end of that natural channel once stream called “Matitani” – greek etymology vaguely reminiscent of the ‘flow’ and ‘overwhelming’ because it carries water and detritus from the hills during heavy rains. In the area were found tombs, remains of settlements dating from the seventh century. B.C. and evidence of the imperial era.

The church of Our Lady of the Saturday is about one kilometer far from the town and was built in the mid-seventeenth century in a Basilian cave dug out of tufa, where were founded a painted wall. The painting dates back to the XV century and represents the Virgin and Child with a pair of angels.It is located at the bottom of a small cave, accessible by two staircases. Itis likely the work of shepherd in transhumance.

The discovery took place on a Saturday, 15 days after Easter of an unknown year. Since then was given that name to the painting on the wall, and its feast is celebrated annually just fifteen days after Easter.
