Almost all of the places in Elba Island are bounded to the sea, but in the case of Porto Azzurro, the bound with the waves is even more special. A bound that is reminded and celebrated every year during the San Giacomo feast, which will be held on July 25 even in 2015.
The program of San Giacomo fest 2015:
- From 18:30. The scent of the fisheries will be smelled in the streets. This will be the start of the feast.
- From 19:00. The photographic exhibition “The sea and its people” will be inaugurated: it’s a tribute and a historical representation of Porto Azzurro.
- From 21:00. There will be a sea-procession with rowboats that will accompany the statue of the Saint: this old ritual is made by figures in costume.
- Once the statue of the Saint arrives, there will be a procession that will end at the church which is dedicated to San Giacomo.
- From 21:30. Here starts the party on the Porto Azzurro’s streets, with stalls, music, exhibitions, and tastings of typical dishes.
