Our Lady of Grace festivity
The Our Lady of Grace Festival is one of the largest festivals on the island. This Festivity is for Porto Santo what the Monte Festivity is for Funchal. 14th August calls for a visit to the Graça Chapel, for an meeting of faith and tradition.
The lighting runs down the mountain for approximately 500 meters. The paved road is covered with stalls selling traditional food and drinks. This feast gathers not only residents but also hundreds of people who are on vacation on the island in August. The Eucharist is celebrated the next day, followed by the Procession.
