St Prospero: patron saint of Reggio Emilia

 

St Prospero: patron saint of Reggio Emilia

 

One of the favourite celebrations of the city is in honour of the patron saint on November 24th.

The holy relics of the saint are still kept in the Basilica of St Prospero, protected at the main door by large lions of red Verona marble.

 

The whole downtown area of the city, including the Via Emilia and the squares, is crowded with market stalls.

It's impossible to resist the crackling of chestnuts being roasted everywhere in town.

 

It's like holding the warmth of this land and its people in your hands.
