There are many cities to visit, starting with Modica, the one that hosts us, and then traveling through the streets of the Baroque, from Scicli to Ibla, up to the Cathedral of Noto.
San Giovanni Battista
The whole Ragusa gathers around its patron saint with an interminable procession of candles, characterized by the presence of many faithful barefoot or with a red garment, as a sign of a vow or grace received.
The patron saint of the city of Modica is accompanied through the streets of the city, with a moment of fires and celebrations on his return to the Duomo. The party is scheduled for the Sunday following April 23rd.
