Celebrations of Port Salvo's Madonna

Fri, 08/09/2019 - 00:00 to Sun, 08/11/2019 - 00:00

 

On the second Sunday of August, every year, at Gaeta celebrates the Porto Salvo's Madonna. She is considered the protector of seafarers who brings people back from the sea to the earth and saves them.

On the occasion of the festivities a procession takes place on the sea. The statue of the Madonna, covered with gold, silk and gold, is carried on a boat with others followed, all decorated and flagged.

The procession arrives at the place called Punta Stendardo; here a crown is left in the water to commemorate the fallen of the sea. Tradition has it that in 1655 the Madonna appeared to shipwrecked people during a storm, helping them. This religious celebration, whose protagonists are fishermen and sailors in general, has remained a heartfelt communion event over the centuries.

The party then continues throughout the evening in the village of Porto Salvo, with music, shows and stalls.
