Festival of Carmine 2018 in Naples with the traditional celebrations: scheduled singing, torchlight procession and lights in the square!
Like every year, I'm scheduled in Naples the celebrations for the Carmine Festival, a moment very much felt by the Neapolitan people. The appointment is for the And July 15 16 2018 with a program based on tradition between masses, songs, torchlight processions and illuminations. To welcome the party is the wonderful Sanctuary of the Carmine Maggiore, located in Piazza del Carmine in the ancient Mercato district.
The evening of the 16 July will be held Concluding concelebration presided over by Cardinal Crescenzio Sepe, Archbishop of the Archdiocese of Naples. Deeply rooted in local culture, religious recurrence makes it homage to the Madonna del Carmelo, shown inicon of the Brown Virgin, dear to the faithful and object of adoration.
The 15 July, at sunset, will be lit. evocative illuminations that will animate the square. The Sanctuary of the Carmine Maggiore, one of the main points of reference for the local faithful, has ancient origins. It is already known in the 13 century, when the small church of San Nicola was built, then incorporated into the current structure. The basilica today represents one extraordinary example of baroque with sumptuous chapels, precious marbles, paintings and organs from the 400 and the 600.
