Do not miss the Festival most loved by Venetians, The Redeemer.
The Feast of the Redeemer is the event that commemorates the construction of the Church of the Redeemer as an ex voto for the liberation of the city from the plague of 1575-1577.
At the end of the plague it was decided to celebrate with the setting up of a votive bridge on the Giudecca Canal connecting the island with the Zattere at the height of the Church of the Holy Spirit, thus allowing the pedestrian to reach the Church of the Redeemer.
This celebration becomes a tradition still active after almost five centuries.
In addition to the religious character, the festival is remembered for a great fireworks show that is held on the night between the third Saturday and Sunday of July on the Basin of San Marco and for the three regattas of typical Venetian boats organized on the next day, attracting a large audience from all over the world.
