Stage 2 – From the Church of S. Bartolomeo to the Cathedral


The procession then descends along the northern part of via Milano, across the square where once the convent of S. Francesco stood, in front of the bulwark with lunette and enters  the walled city, along via Cesare Cantu. The procession passes in front of the Church of S. Cecilia, while on the left a short deviation from the main path along via Giovio allows you to reach the Church of S. Donnino. The procession continued instead on the right, following via Giovio towards Piazza Medaglie d’Oro (Gold Medals’ Square).

From this point on, our route coincides (in reverse) with stage 1 of the Route 1. Crossing the square, the procession proceeds along via Vittorio Emanuele, and passes between the apse of the Church of S. Fedele and the Municipal Palace, until it reaches Piazza Duomo. Here, a moment of pause and reverence takes place, in front of the door, kept wide open, of the Cathedral.
