Festival of Saint Agatha

The Festival of Saint Agatha is the most important event for Catania's citizens.
It takes place in the first half of February: every day, the city is animated with celebrations, exhibitions, the numerous Saint devoted, stands and stalls full of delicious treats and specialties dedicated to the Saint, music, fireworks and eighteennth-century votive candles all over the city. The processions start from the Dome, il Duomo: the Saint devoted haul the fercolo, a palanquin which contains the relic chest of Saint Agatha. We look forward to make you enjoy this antique and spectacular event so closely.
