San Cono Celebration

Thousands of devotees from all over the country gather in the city of Florida, more precisely in ‘San Cono’s Chapel’, opened in 1885, to worship ‘San Cono’ (Saint brought by Italian immigrants from the region of Teggiano), pray, take part in the procession and the multiple mass services in his honour, and to visit the great market which attracts all kinds of businesses. This celebration is part of the ‘Ruta 5 Sentidos’ project, an interactive tourist initiative which involves the departments of Canelones, Florida and Durazno.
