Feast of the Assumption

Feast of the Assumption

This feast is particularly felt by the inhabitants of Positano for their devotion to Our Lady of the Assumption considered the protector of the village.

In particular, it evokes an ancient legend that tells of a ship, carrying a Byzantine icon of the Madonna, blocked by dead calm in the bay of Positano. The sailors where able to leave only when they donated the icon to the inhabitants of Positano.

On August 14, the celebrations begin with the "Alzata del Quadro" (lift of the painting) in front of the Church of Santa Maria Assunta. During the evening a procession of illuminated boats reaches the rocks "Mamma e Figlio" (Mother and Son) in Fornillo and returns to Spiaggia Grande and then to the cathedral.

On August 15, the festival continues late into the night with a show of fireworks over the sea that light up the Amalfi Coast.

Feast of Our Lady of the Snow

Feast of Our Lady of the Snow

The feast of Our Lady of the Snow is celebrated in Conca dei Marini, at the church nestled among the rocks, one of the most beautiful places in the village.

The holy Mass is celebrated on the beach in front of the church, that is too small for the faithful. When the Mass is over, a procession by sea on fishing boats typical of the Amalfi coast leads people to Amalfi.

During the way back to Conca dei Marini, the procession stops in Furore before returning to Conca dei Marini.
