Assumption of Mary

August 15 is one of the major festivities here in South Tyrol.

We celebrate this day as "Mariä Himmelfahrt" and also as "Ferragosto".
Last year I showed you the free time part, this year I present you the religious part...

Here we see the procession in the small village Unsere liebe Frau im Walde / Senale.
