Overview of Castelsardo
The event of Lunissanti
It’s at the same time a religious procession, run by the Brotherhood of the Holy Cross, a small pilgrimage and one of the most popular celebrations in town.
The morning of Lunissanti
The protagonists are the “Apostles” and the “Cantors”, elected among the confreres, who wear long white tunics.
The Apostles have the task of exposing and bringing in the symbols of the Passion of Christ, the so-called “Mysteries”; they wear tunics and also carry a pointed white cap that completely masks the face.
The Cantors perform suggestive songs of a pregregorian origin, including the Miserere, accompanying the parade of Mysteries ending in the Church of Tergu.
The evening of Lunissanti
From here, at sunset, the confreres go out through the alleys of the old town; locals and tourists follow them, to the entrance of the church of Santa Maria.
