"Ante Diem Sanctae Crucis." Lucca Local Custom Tip by Maurizioago

Lucca Local Customs: 23 reviews and 30 photos

This is a Medieval festival which lasts around three days. The organizers of this event like to recreate the ambiance of Lucca as it could have been some days before the procession of the Volto Santo (Holy Face...see tip about the cathedral) in the Middle Ages. Ante Diem S. C. is planned some days before september 13.

As many Medieval festivals, at Ante Diem S. C. you can enjoy a market, dances, parades, entertainments for children and many other things.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
