Night excursion from the Basilica of NS of Locusantu to the hermitage of the saints Nicola and Trano, with reading and commentary on the Condaghe de Logusantu, the episcopal letter of 1519 in which tells the foundation of the sanctuaries of Luogosanto.
The archaeological and religious site
The small church of San Trano, built between rocks sculpted by the mistral and twisted and grazed olive trees by goats, is able to give the pilgrim or the simple visitor an atmosphere of authentic meditation. The oral tradition, supported by a bishop's letter of 1519, states that this church was built in 1218 by two Franciscan friars in the place where in the fourth century they lived, preached and were buried the holy anchorites Trano and Nicola. The cult of the two hermits, from which the name of Luogosanto originates, still continues and is manifested in particular during the feast of the first Sunday of June, set up by a popular committee in the grove next to the hermitage.
