For Courmayeur, February 14 is a special day, in fact, in addition to being the Valentine’s day, it is also the winter patron Saint of the village and the day when the sun lights it up for an extra hour passing high above the summit of Mount Crammont.
Courmayeur is therefore celebrating: decorated windows and boutiques adorned with imagination by merchants give to Via Roma, the pedestrian shopping street, a special atmosphere.
Animations, music, gourmet and tradition in the streets of the center.
A day to savor walking romantically to discover the most evocative corners of the village, or letting yourself be involved in the cheerfulness of the folkloristic group Les Badochys, which parades through the streets of the center offering traditional dances and music, accompanied by friendly Beuffons , the colorful army protagonist of the carnival, announced by the characteristic sound of the bells.
Popular religiosity is expressed with the Holy Mass, which takes place at 6pm in the parish church of San Pantaleone, in Abbé Henry square.
