21 November, 2007
Every year, the 21st of Novembre, Venetians (and also many tourists) make a pilgrimage to the Salute Church. The church was built in 1631 by Baldassarre Longhena to thank the Lady who had stopped a terrible plague that killed 46.000 Venetians (and the Doge)!
The evening of the 20th it’s used to eat the castradina, mutton meat smoked, and after the visit to the church there are sweets, frittelle and air balloons for the kids.
Just for this feast a boat bridge is built on the Grand Canal.
