San Giuliano Terme
To celebrate the patron, Saint Bartholomew, on August 24th San Giuliano Terme organizes a “luminara”, a lights show.
The citizens assemble the biancheria (Italian word for ‘linen’), the wooden structures painted in white that welcome the candles and frame the windows and the outlines of the buildings, the three bridges of the village, and the majestic facade of the thermal palace, according to the custom of the famous “Luminara di San Ranieri” in Pisa. The approximately 4,000 candles replace artificial lights for a night and illuminate the small boats on the waters of the Mulino ditch with a touch of magic.
Celebrations start at 6.00 pm at the ChurchSanti Ranieri and Luigi Gonzaga, with a solemn mass for the patron saint.
Along with the religious events, the traditional fair with little antique and handicraft market takes place. Fireworks show starts around 9.30 in front of the Terme.
