Celebrations for St Christopher the Patron Saint of Barga which started today with the “San Cristoforo d’oro” awards ceremony, continued this evening to its climax with a long torchlight procession through the streets of Barga up to the Duomo.
Thousands of people lining the streets of Barga watched what was probably the largest San Cristoforo Procession ever seen in the city, this year led by Mons. Vasco Bertelli the Bishop of Volterra.
The banners and mayors of most of the comunes in Garfaganana and Mediavalle were in the procession along with representatives from Pisa and Florence.
