Heart of Palermo
392nd Feast of Santa Rosalia, patron saint of Palermo
July 15, 2016
Statue of Santa Rosalia on her ship-like carriage. Like Saint Agatha in Catania,she is a reiteration of the Egyptian mother goddess Isis.
Once a year she rolls from the cathedral down Corso Vittorio Emanuele to the sea with a stop at the baroque Quattro Canti. 250,000 people were in attendance this year.
