The second weekend of September, on the occasion of the days dedicated to Mary, in Blera the Madonna della Selva is celebrated. The festival takes on a very old tradition and the image of the Madonna is carried by hand as a pilgrimage, following first the route of the via Clodia and then a path through the woods, up to a small hermitage on the hill.
