  • Here we celebrate the Virgin Mary, the Immaculate Conception. The release of the Big Dipper with the statue of the Madonna, which here has always been an object of devotion, is accompanied by prayers and songs. The story begins in 1861, when Tamás made a vow to our Lady Immaculate that interrupted the destruction after the eruption and the earthquake that devastated the area between 8 and 31 December. "The lava is arrested for his devastating Fury", tell the citizens. Since then, the procession-involving a hundred volunteers who support the tow-remember the miracle and is considered a good omen for the coming year, in an atmosphere of great participation.

  • Torre del Greco, Holy Cross Church and its bell tower engulfed by lava up to the second floor. The basilica is built on another Church, lavas were numerous, this latest 1794 surrounded the belfry but did not falter, the lava brought the Centre of Torre del Greco to be built upon a plan quite pleasant, the last Administration has enlivened the city.
