Stella Maris Festival in Camogli

The Stella Maris Festival, the religious festival held on the first Sunday of August in Camogli, returns as every year.

This festival dates back to the fifteenth century and is dedicated to the "Star of the Sea", a title with which the fishermen venerate the Virgin Mary.

On this occasion, a procession of boats is held in the morning, from Camogli to Punta Chiappa, where the altar of the Madonna "Stella di Mare" is located. In the evening, thousands of lit candles are released on the water from the beach of Camogli, illuminating the sea, which together with the fireworks show give a suggestive and unmissable environment.
