Feast of Our Lady of Constantinople
MONTE SAN GIACOMO - Sunday after Pentecost Go to Village

On sunday, they renew the great celebrations of our lady of constantinople or madonna dei cerri in the mountain resort where stands the chapel dedicated to her. According to tradition the chapel was built following a vision of the blessed virgin on a plant in that area or as a thank you to a woman committed to the healing of the child. The morning of the festival is organizing a long procession on foot along the way from the mother church of the village to the chapel, carrying a votive painting of the saint instead of the usual statue because being walled can not be withdrawn. Once at the chapel are celebrated religious rites and then outside you can taste the local dishes along with musical performances and entertainment for children. To end the evening is planned a show of fireworks.
