Saint Agatha Feast
Saint Agata celebration is the most important religious feast in Catania city.
It takes place every year from the 3rd to the 5th of February and on the 17th of August.
During the three days, the city becomes crowded of celebrating people; everything is abuzz during the preparations to honour the patron saint, Virgin and Martyr from Catania, whose charming history was able to move even the hardest hearts. For three days, people get together in the streets and plazas. Devotees and curious count up to hundreds of thousands and sometimes reach one million.
