Porto Torres celebrates Festha Manna

During the last days of June, 3, 4 and 5, in Porto Torres’s been the cult of the Saints Martyrs Turritani Gavino, Proto and Gianuario.

On May 3, the sixteenth-century wooden simulacres depicting the Martyrs are brought to procession from the Basilica of San Gavino to the church of Balai.

So there is a daily pilgrimage from the early dawn to sunset, until the afternoon of Pentecost, the eve of the popular festival most attended by the Turritans.

On Sunday of Pentecost, the procession starts from Balai with the wooden statues that return to the Basilica after crossing the promenade and the center of Porto Torres, accompanied by civil, military, religious and population authorities.

The monday after Pentecost, is the famous “Festha Manna”, the Great Holiday.

I really loved to take part of the celebration, because Turritans have got a strong and ancient tradition and this experience it has been one of the most suggestive I’ve lived.
