The Festival Of Saint Andrew

After evening mass at the cathedral, a 20-strong team of men carry a huge silver statue of Amalfi’s protector, Saint Andrew, down the steps. As they weave their way down to the harbour, locals reach forward to touch the statue then kiss their hands. And the drama continues when the men return to the cathedral – and have to run up the 57 steps. It’s a great spectacle, with marching bands and fireworks, too.
