Hi!Next stop on our trip was Agrigento, and we were so lucky we visited when we did as we witnessed the celebration of San Colagero.
The Festival of San Calogero is celebrated from the first to the second week of July with seven days of joyful devotion and solemn celebration in honor of the black co-Patron Saint of Agrigento. The history of San Calogero dates back to the 4th - 5th Centuries. The saint escaped the persecutions that were decimating the Christian churches of North Africa, whose followers took refuge in Sicily, in particular in Agrigento where he stayed for a long time. His talents for miracles soon made him the most beloved holy person in the territory of Agrigento
At the end you can see pictures from the Archaeological Area of Agrigento. area which was included in the Unesco Heritage Site.
Hope your having a great week!
Thank you so much for visiting!
