Festa Madonna della Visitazione 2

Every year, on July 2, we celebrate the Feast of Our Lady of the Visitation, the patron saint of the city of Enna. Together with the rites of Holy Week it is the most important religious event of the Eereo capital. The statue of the Virgin is hailed as the patron saint of good crops by farmers, who are responsible for the honor of carrying the statue of the Virgin. During the procession, the palanquin is carried by devotees from the Cathedral to the Church of Montesalvo; more than a hundred men with bare feet and long embroidered coats wave white handkerchiefs while supporting shoulders the weight of the statue of the Madonna on their shoulders. The procession stops in different places, where canons explode the so-called “sarbiate”; arriving in Montesalvo, at the homonymous church running out the statues of San Zaccaria and Santa Elisabetta exit the church running to meet the Madonna at the entrance to the church of the Patron palanquin, at this point the long-awaited fireworks begin.
