The Candelieri Feast (I Candelieri) dates back to the thirteenth century. The procession of Candlesticks – said Faradda – in Sarinia language – is a rite heard by the Sassaresi. All people from the town will take part on it, all of them: from the real protagonists, the bearers of the Candelieri, the Gremi and the gremanti.

On August 14th, early morning, begins the faradda day with the so-called “vestizione”. Each Gremio dresses its own Candlestick. The “descent” of the Candelieri takes place on the evening of 14th August starting from the square Castello where the ancient Aragonese castle stood. Elected by UNESCO World Heritage.
