Sacred Heart fires
Every year the first Sunday after Corpus Domini the South Tyrolean people light up high fires on the peaks of the mountains: the fires stand for an ancient tradition from 1796 when the united Tyrol was oppressed by the Bavarians and the French.
To fight them, they made an oath with the Sacred Heart, which helped them, to win against the oppressors. The South Tyrolean pledge eternal loyalty. With the fires South Tyrol remembers the oath and renews it every year. Join the night full of fires and take part of an ancient costum!
