Festival of the Holy Saints Papardura Crucifix
SS. Crocifisso di Papardura 3 - Fine Art Produzioni
On September 13 and 14 September in Enna, one of the oldest and suggestive festivals of the city takes place. Hundreds of believers go on a pilgrimage to the beautiful sanctuary perched on Papardura to celebrate the Crucifix with solemn liturgies; this tradition is rooted in the distant centuries and was built by farmers and shepherds who once inhabited the area. During the festival “Cuddureddi”, or donuts made of flour mixed with water and baked, prepared by local housewives, are distributed to the devotees. According to some experts, these donuts are a legacy of propitiatory scones dedicated to Ceres, evoking the female genitalia, a symbol of fertility.
