Festa dei Ceri 2019 - GUBBIO

15 May 2019

Every year in Gubbio on the eve of the feast of the patron saint of the town, on May 15th, takes place "Festa dei Ceri". The festival has been repeted for centuries without interruption. It is a strong tradition that started in 1160 and it is steeped in the blood of Gubbio's inhabitants.

"Ceri" are 3 enormous wooden structures in the form of overlapped prisms, on the top of them there are Saint Ubaldo, Saint George and Saint Anthony statues. They are carried by back by some men called "ceraioli" who run through the streest of the town for about 4 km, showing great strength and ability. 

It is a must see and super exciting festival!
