Interested in other feast days for the Cinque Terre villages and other nearby cities? Check out my previous post here.
Aside from a special Mass today (Friday, June 23rd) at 6pm, villagers in Riomaggiore will also partake in a special procession dedicated to San Giovanni Battista at 9pm. After the procession (which heads to the marina from the big church, and back) there will be fundraisers on the piazzale (church square). Rumor has it there will be fireworks after the procession this year.
Whether you’re religious or not, these processions and festivities are a fascinating way to observe and connect with local traditions.
