Santo Amaro Feast in Santa Cruz

Santo Amaro Feast – 2014
January, 15th
This religious festivity marks the occasion when families gather to dismantle their Nativity scenes “lapinhas” and “sweep the larder clean” – a tradition that consists in visiting family and friends to share the last holiday’s delights.“Santo Amaro” is celebrated throughout the entire island of Madeira, but it’s in the municipality of Santa Cruz where this festivity is celebrated in honour of its patron saint, in a particularly festive and ceremonial way, setting the end of the Christmas holidays.
