Hi all,

in the link to pictures of Matera, I could not help pointing out a building just to the right of the steeple. It has a structure on top with four small arches. My ancestors, the Venusio family, built this palazzo in the 1600s. They also lead an army from Matera to fight the Turks who had landed an army in Otranto. The Pope canonized the matyrs a few years ago. This ancestor was captured in the siege of Constantinople and enslaved for seven years and escaped where he fled to Albania and joined Skanderbeg in fighting the Turks. Great images of the city above, nights shots capture mystic of the city. Thank you.
