»» Things To Do in Sicily at Easter Time

Easter celebrations in Sicily involve various rituals and processions throughout the Holy Week.
Those who are visiting Palermo during the Holy Week have a chance to attend singular Easter celebrations and festivals in cities and villages located in the surroundings.

Palermo

We suggest a visit to the town of Gangi (view map). where devotees of the Madonna compete against those who venerate Jesus during the Holy Week. The peaceful competition consists of creating the best decorations in the streets of the town.

The town of Prizzi (view map) offers “The Dance of the Devils“, an Easter archaic festival of medieval origins. The festival represents the cosmic struggle between good and evil.
The re-enactments of the Dance of the Devils, with villagers performing the Dance of the Devils by wearing large and terrifying iron masks, reaches its climax on Easter Sunday when the forces of evil come to claim the town.

Also in Palermo many Easter rituals, ranging from re-enactments of the Last Supper to street processions dating back several centuries, span the whole of the Holy Week.
