The Redentore is one of the Venetians’ most treasured festivities, which dates back to 1577 to commemorate the end of the pestilence. For the occasion, the Basilica del Palladio was built on the Giudeccca Island. Today the Redeemer Feast has become one of the most important events in Venice thanks to the spectacular fireworks display in the evening that attracts every year thousands of tourists. The Redentore falls on the third Sunday in July. During this day, the Holy Mass is held in the presence of the Patriarch, followed by a religious procession. The procession goes through a huge bridge made out of boats that is 330 meters long. However, the highlight of the event takes place on Saturday night: with the unbeatable backdrop of Saint Mark’s Basin, a play of lights and reflections produce a kaleidoscope of colors with the silhouetted spires, domes and bell towers of the city behind.
The Baglioni Hotel Luna, just a few steps from Saint Mark’s Square, offers the unique opportunity to spend an unforgettable evening to experience the Venetian Redeemer Feast.
