FEAST OF OUR LADY OF HEALTH 21 November 2015 The Festa della Salute is probably the least “touristy”, and evokes strong religious feelings among the people. The holiday is, like the Redentore, in memory of another bout of pestilence, that the two-year period 1630-31, and the subsequent vow by the Doge to obtain the intercession of the Virgin. In 1630, more than half a century after the terrible plague of 1575-77, the disease gripped Venice once more. Doge makes a vow to build a church called the Salute, asking for the intercession of the Virgin Mary to end the plague. Even today, thousands of people parade on November 21 before the main altar of the imposing Salute Church to perpetuate the long-standing tradition of giving thanks to the city and the Virgin Mary City of Venice – Madonna della Salute
