Easter at Trapani

 

Easter Misteri_Trapaniat Trapani, is a good idea to visit Sicily. At Trapani there is infact, a wonderful procession with 20 groups of 18th century religious statues, safely guarded at the “Purgatory Church” for all the year. This event starts on Thursday when all the statues will be draped and decorated with flowers, plants and silver objects ready for the big event the next day. Everyone is welcome to attend the last phases of the preparation. The Misteri on Good Friday (30th March 2016) is the highlight of the Easter week, an ancient ritual procession of the 20 groups of statues, carried on the shoulders of people and walking along the streets of Trapani, accompanied by a music group. These groups stay all night long in procession and on Saturday (31st March 2016) return to the

Pasqua_TrapaniChurch. Saturday morning is probably the most beautiful part of the Easter procession, to see some breathtaking moments of the entrance of all the groups of Misteri in the Purgatory Church.
