MAURITANO WEDDING “AN ANCIENT RITE THAT LIVES IN TIME”

This ancient rite has been celebrated for 51 years, a religious marriage that respects the traditional rite of the Roman Catholic Apostolic Church.

The typical dressing takes place at “Sa Domu Antiga” with the help of the village costume designers. The bride is blessed by the Water Rite and by Sa Gratzia: auspicious rituals for the new couple handed down from generation to generation. The first Sunday in August is an important day for the whole village, because this promise of eternal love, revitalizes the traditions left by African people who in the past arrived in these lands.
