Discover why you should include “Easter In Sicily” in your bucket list .
The canopy of the Mother Mary is kept at the Addolorata Church, while the one of the Dead Christ is kept at S. Salvatore Church. Both of the canopies are not visible during the rest of the year and there is a ritual preparation ceremony during the holy week, done mostly on Good Friday Morning. Both of them are then carried throughout the crowded streets of the historical centre of Enna. This means that you can’t follow them both at the same time from their departure. We followed Mother Mary’s one.
By that point it is dark and the members of the confraternities march back to the Cathedral with their lanterns and the two canopies. The Good Friday parade in Enna, ends around 1 am the day after, when the brothers have taken back the statues to the churches where they belong.
