Overview
More
La Festa dei Ceri, also known as Saint Ubaldo Day, is a celebratory day to honour Bishop Ubaldo Baldassini. Every year on the 15th of May, the evening of his death, the people of Gubbio celebrate the protector of their city with a procession. They walk as quickly as possible down the streets with statues of three saints on wooden pedestals. Along the way thousands of spectators, citizens and tourists watch the colourful scene. The procession ends in the Basilica di Sant'Ubaldo on Mount Ingino. The Gubbio traditions are very important for this little town and the celebration has remained mostly authentic.
