San Filippo Siriaco fest in Calatabiano

An extraordinary party to say the least. The key points of the event are the shoulder transport of the saint’s fercolo along a steep slope and the food and wine event that comes to life in the center of the village. Tradition has its roots in a deep past. Suffice it to consider the carriers of the fercolo have followed one another for 250 years. The characteristic is the speed with which the saint is transported along the descent.
