The event was created after the great plague epidemic that hit Northern Italy and consists in a pilgrimage to the Basilica Santa Maria della Luce.
From November 20th to 22nd, in order to facilitate the pilgrimage, a temporary wooden bridge is built on the Grand Canal that links Punta della Dogana to Santa Maria del Giglio.
A classical tradition of the event is “Castradina”, an old dish with roast leg of mutton in addition to the setting up of a vibrant market of sweets and toys.
The celebration of St Mary of Health is probably a great opportunity to visit Venice and take part in the traditions of this magnificent city!
