Portovenere Madonna Bianca Celebrations
Madonna Bianca (White Madonna) is celebrated every 17 August in Portovenere: thousands of candles are lit to illuminate the promontory of San Pietro and its church. Wonderful! It’s possible to reach Portovenere by boat from any Cinque Terre Village or from La Spezia. The scenery of Portovenere lit by thousands light will leave you speechless!
