The start of the procession, where the effigy/reliquary of Sant Andrea is borne out of the Duomo before being carried through the town, out to the sea front, onto the beach to bless the local fishing boats and eventually back to the Duomo.
Link to video showing the impressive finale of the procession, where the procession runs all the way up the steep steps to the Duomo.
