#349 I miss giugno – 2

June 16th, San Ranieri, the patron Saint of the city of Pisa from 1284.

In 1688 the body of the Saint was transferred to the Cathedral of Pisa. The event was celebrated with an amazing feast, the whole town was enlightened with candles.

That was the beginning of the traditional Luminara di San Ranieri.

Spectacular! Something you really want to see at least once in your life.
