Festa della Madonna dell'Angelo / Events

Key event to the community of believers of Caorle

It is held only every five years, but it is one of the most expected events of Caorle. Festa della Madonna dell'Angelo is centered around a votive procession which occasions the carrying of the Virgin’s image along the cliffs, from the Fish Port to the Church of the Blessed Virgin of the Angel.

Locals of Caorle maintain a keen Marian cult, so the feast is central to their agenda. The Virgin has played a key role in the history of the town, as traditions maintain. It is a moment when the local community goes back to its origins, evokes its past and renews its traditions. For tourists, a must see, in particular if you are interested in discovering in depth the identity of this top beach resort, behind the mainstream tourist opportunities.
