Castelsardo is preparing for Holy Week

Easter is approaching and Castelsardo, one of the most characteristic villages of Sardinia, is preparing for liturgical celebrations that go beyond the purely religious aspect. The events held in the streets of the town, in fact, are real gathering events, among the oldest and most picturesque of the island.

The program of Holy Week has been made known these days. It begins Sunday, April 14 at 8.30 am with Mass at the Church of the Holy Family. At 10.30, in Piazza Pianedda, the blessing of the palms will be held, one of the most awaited stops, followed by the liturgical celebration in the Cathedral. On Monday 15, at 7 am, the procession will begin with the delivery of the mysteries at the Basilica of Tergu. The procession is a very suggestive moment, with the parade in typical Sardinian costumes destined to attract the curiosity of tourists. At 20.30, instead, the night procession will start from the Cathedral of Sant’Antonio Abate, another very fascinating moment.
