In October, Gaeta becomes more and more the “City of Mary” on the occasion of the Anniversary of the Foundation of the Confraternity of the Rosary and of the celebrations for the Madonna del Rosario.

The confraternity was founded exactly on 1 October 1622 and every year this event takes on a particular religious significance that is celebrated with a Mass in which the promises of fidelity are renewed by members of the confraternity.

The morning mass is accompanied by songs that are performed by the choir of the Cathedral. In the afternoon the musical band runs through the streets of the district accompanying the procession and the ceremonies are closed with a new mass. Finished the religious part, all in the square for a musical show.
