This is a "bird’s eye view" of a very important church in Sant’Antimo. It is called the "Santuario di Sant’Antimo, prete e martire." Sant’Antimo is the patron saint of this town. Every year in May, this town has a feast in honor of this patron saint. The church’s facade is decorated with molded, multi-colored lights. There are special activities and processions. People from all over the region join in on the festivities. My grandfather, Antimo Puca, was most likely baptized in this church. His parents, Stefano and Teresina, were married here.
