The Procession

Procession of St. Anne

According to Catholic religion July 26th is the day of St. AnneSant’Anna, as it is called in Italian, is the patron saint of Palizzi, in the southern region of Calabria, Italy. Every year on this date in Palizzi Superiore (the oldest part of the municipality) there is the procession of the patron saint. Much of the population participates with deep devotion to the “processione di Sant’Anna”. It is of course an excellent opportunity to visit this semi-abandoned ancient village and photograph this popular tradition.
