The Feast of Redeemer is one of the most important festivals in Venice, which attracts both tourists and people who live in Venice and on the mainland .
During the third Sunday of July Venetian people build a bridge to connect Venice island (Fondamenta delle Zattere) to the Paladian Basilica of the Redeemer in Giudecca Island. Giudecca island is located right in front of Venice . The bridge is built to let the pilgrims cross the sea and reach the Basilica.
The Basilica was built in order to remember the end of the plague which took place in 1576. Consequently every year the bridge is built as a vow and Venetian people remind to themselves the important event by celebrating th Feast of the Redeemer.
As matter of fact on Saturday night a lot of decorated boates gather near Saint Mark’s Basin waiting for the fireworks which take place around midnight. During that night Venetian people usually sing, dance and eat while waiting to enjoy the fireworks.
