  • In this period is honoured the patron saint of Palermo, Santa Rosalia. The Santuzza lived on Montepellegrino and in this sacred place that every year the of Palermo ones go. On 4 September through the old staircase, which is nothing but a long, steep, winding dirt road, you arrive in Santa's Grotto. Many of palermitani devotion to reach the cave in bare feet and others on her knees performing the last part of the path. This is an event between Palermo and many heartfelt ones still make the Irenaeus ascribes convinced that their prayers will be heard. If you're in Palermo at this time don't miss this or occasion.

  • Just before you get to the top of Mount San Pellegrino you come across this small but interesting shrine dedicated to the patron saint of Palermo, Santa Rosalia. Inside is a statue dedicated to this Saint and the particularity is that it is located in a natural cavern. At the exit of the sanctuary there are numerous dedications left by faithful to Santa Rosalia for graces received or would.

  • So their is a modern church built on the site but the chapel built into the cave is the interesting part. It is dedicated to St Rosita who lived in this cave and helped save Palermo from the Plaque.
