If you want to know Palermo in the most folkloristic night don’t miss the July 14th and the procession of Santa Rosalia.

Along the Corso Vittorio Emanuele, from the Cathedral to the sea, from 8 pm to 2 am an open air show, a flood of people , shows, songs, street food and fireworks.

The celebrations in honor of the Saint recall the miracle of the liberation of the city from the plague of 1624.

The sanctuary of Monte Pellegrino, a church dug out of the rock, is dedicated to her.  On September 4th the people from Palermo devoted to the Saint embark on a pilgrimage journey to the mountain.
