Feast of the Madonna del Castello in Palma di Montechiaro
The Feast of the Madonna del Castello in Palma di Palma di Montechiaro takes place on the Sunday following Easter: according to an ancient ritual, at dawn hundreds of faithful, barefoot, go to the castle to collect the fascinating "Madonna di Montechiaro" , sixteenth-century marble statue sculpted by Antonello Gagini. The statue is crowned and taken to the city, where a solemn procession unfolds. The statue is then exhibited for a week in the Mother Church and for another 3 in the church of the Benedictine monastery. On the Sunday before the Ascension it is brought back to the Castle chapel, where it is kept for the rest of the year.
