May 10, 2015

Bermuda’s Portuguese community came together today [May 10] to celebrate the “Festa do Senhor Santo Cristo dos Milagres”.

A centuries old tradition that originated in the Azores in the 17th century, the “Festa do Senhor Santo Cristo dos Milagres” [Festival of the Christ of Miracles], sees a solemn procession through Hamilton with participants walking on a carpet of flowers set down beforehand.

Some 400 years old, the Festival is the largest religious celebration of the Azores. It was celebrated this same weekend in the Azores, as well as by members of the Portuguese diaspora across the globe.
