The Chiesa del Santissimo Redentore, commonly recognized as Il Redentore, is a 16th-century Roman Catholic church located on Giudecca in the sestiere of Dorsoduro, in the city of Venice, Italy. The Festa del Redentore is one of the most impressive traditional events in Venice. It celebrates the end of the plague of the 16th century and is a yearly event.
So taking these stunning Gondola’s on a racing voyage is a must-see.
The Redentore celebration in Venice is one of the oldest and most popular festivals in Venice.
Most people see fit not choose to visit Giudecca in the sestiere of Dorsoduro. But this is the perfect time to do so.
One of the most spectacular participations of the festival is a temporary floating bridge is erected. So people can walk to the Il Redentore, which is a 16th-century Roman Catholic church on the other side of the weekend. Normally you can only access this by taxi boat.
The locals flock to the church to pray and have lump. Normally there are fireworks too but due to Covid 19 it was cancelled.
The bridge is behind these Gondola’s and the main traffic when the step on the gas is not on can still access the city.
Venice is a city of rich color this was replicated with the Gondola’s ripping.
On Saturday there is a small parade of musical boats that sail the sea for entertainment which is a lot of fun.
Distinct from the traditional Gondola, as we know it, these racing Gondola’s are colourful.
The highlight is the Sunday yacht racing. The Gondola’s are modified for the race.
The setting is spectacular.
The race is two men in the boat with an ore each and they row as wildly as they can. To identify each team a different colourful Gondola is used. They look adorable on the sea.
I wish have to say it is one of the most spectacular boat races in the world when it comes to a visual perspective.
Look at lovely Venice in the background.
I loved the pink Gondola. As moral support sailing alongside the Gondola’s is locals with their ships which adds to the atmosphere.
The men wore striped nautic t-shirts termed with virginal chinos and black flipper style shoes for grip. This just added to the visual effects of looking at the spillway.
As they were racing the backdrop of Venice was just like a fairytale. There were tables where I could eat and doch an dorris and watch this spectacular Gondola race.
No, where in the world can this ever be replicated.
What are the Gondola trainers employed during racing?
La Dolce Vita
Venice is an open-air museum which we must all treasure. I am loving how the burg is quiet and getting a rest. I am passionate about highlighting Italy for what it is. A sweet life that is rich in lifestyle, food, and ambience.
