This religious holiday has ancient roots and continues to draw people from nearby towns overlooking the lake (Mandello del Lario and Oliveto Lario) as well as from the Brianza and Bergamo areas. The Christian community comes together to pray to the martyr, protector of teeth and the throat, with religious ceremonies and kissing the relic.

To top it all there is the traditional fair with stalls lining the lakeside promenade.
