|One of the most important religious festivals in Italy. Each year more than a million people visit Catania during this festival to follow the strict rituals, parades, processions and religious rites. For over 500 years this festival has scarcely changed. For many, the second day of the festa is the most special. Sant'Agata's reliquary statue is carried out of the Cathedral and through the crowded streets of the city, in a day-long procession that stops off at all the places that have a connection with the saint's life. Fireworks and partying ensue.
