Feast of Jesus and of the Holy Sacrament
The festivity of "Santissimo Sacramento", also known as the "arraial do Bom Jesus”, is celebrated on the first Sunday of September, in the parish of Ponta Delgada, São Vicente, event held from August, 26th and 27th.
In the past, this festivity had a strong religious tradition, and was visited by thousands of pilgrims who travelled on foot on the paths that linked the south to the north of the island, in a journey that could take 2 or 3 days.
Nowadays the pilgrimages are no longer carried out in the same way, as pilgrims take their own cars or travel to Ponta Delgada on public transportation.
Today it is still one of the largest festivities of Madeira island.
