Festa della Madonna dell'Angelo (yearly) / Events

Marian celebration that renews locals’ gratitude to the Virgin

Marian feasts are held throughout the year in Caorle. The one organized every five years in September seems to rally more circumstance. There is also a yearly celebration which is held in great respect by locals: organized in the second Sunday of July, it recalls a historical moment of major importance to the development of Caorle.

As tradition goes, bishop Trevisan Suarez prayed, in 1741, to the Virgin to help the town maintain its rights over the waters of the lagoon. Apparently, things worked out for Caorle, and the town kept its privileges. The Marian cult underwent a huge boost of popularity, and believers remember each year they must renew their gratitude.

The procession is marked by a liturgical service held in the historical center.
