The descent of Candelieri in Sassari is simply the Event. The Candelieri were built and have been carried (with huge strains!) in all the magnificence along the main streets of the city centre for over 5 centuries, in order to honour a vote to the Holy Virging, who, according to the religious tradition, relieved the city from plague. The itinerary goes from Piazza Castello to the Santa Maria's church, where the Candelieri’s entrance through the main church door represent the most emotional moment. They are accompanied by a steady drum roll, with a drum player for each Candeliere, and by the people's loud cheering voices! A unique and fascinating show!
