7 July 2019

The history of the pilgrimage of the “Perdòn di Barbana” dates back to 1237 when Grado was saved from a terrible plague. Every year, on the first Sunday of July, an evocative procession of sumptuous and swallowed boats moves in the lagoon from Grado to Barbana. The procession, which begins early in the morning, is guided by the “Star of the Sea”, the boat that carries the statue of Our Lady of the Angels, usually kept in the Basilica of Grado.
On this occasion, the revolving bridge connecting Grado to the mainland is opened and the civil authority gives a symbolic gift to the friars of Barbana.
The weekend is preceded by a series of cultural and entertainment events that culminate in the procession of boats to dissolve the ancient vow, public and solemn, professed in perpetuity by the civil community for the liberation from the most serious and deadly plague among those that struck the region in the Middle Ages and modern times.




From Friday 12 July 2019 to Sunday 14 July 2019 on the “Nazario Sauro” dam in Grado (GO), at 7.00 pm, Grado will host Ein Prosit Grado.

Ein Prosit is the excellent food and wine festival held in July on our Island, a summer version of the Ein Prosit event in Tarvisio.

A pleasant way to discover a unique mix and match between the flavours of the area and the wines from some of the best regional cellars, and to spend a few evenings in front of good food and good wine!
