September in Laigueglia is dedicated to San Matteo, whose statue is carried in procession along the streets of the old town, a special occasion to enjoy an ancient religious tradition. However, you will also see its pagan side: the traditional San Matteo’s fair organized by the city.
Known to everybody as “Fiera di S. MaTè – da u-mò e da-a tera”, the fair takes place from Friday to Sunday (from 21st to 23rd September 2018). The squares of the old town are full of artisans who display their works made of porcelain, filigree and glass, local food and many other curious things you can discover only if you visit it.
In addition to the stalls, in the evening you will enjoy music events, historical representations and exciting fireworks on the sea.
