Procession in honor of the Feast Day of Saint Anthony through the historic center of Anacapri
Saint Anthony is the patron saint of the town of Anacapri, and is celebrated on the Feast Day each year on the 13th of June.
A week before the Feast Day, the Church of Santa Sofia and the historic center of Anacapri are decorated with lights and banners.
On the Feast Day, a religious procession carries a statue of the saint along the lanes in the center of town, and residents toss rose petals and broom blossoms (the official flower of Saint Anthony) on the passing saint from above.
The narrow lanes are lined with stands selling toys, sweets, and household items.
