Processione dei Misteri

One of the most acclaimed and loved events in the city is the ancient Processione dei Misteri, which takes place every Good Friday through the streets of Trapani. Religion and traditions are combined creating moments of great and strong emotions.

The whole citizenry, and an increasing number of visitors from all over the island, Italy and abroad attend to the moving celebration of the Processione dei Misteri. For 24 hours, in fact, the 20 sacred sculptural groups, representing the Passion and Death of Christ, are carried through the city on the shoulders of men walking in a peculiar way, “annacata”, to the rhythm of different processional funeral music played by several bands. Faith, emotion, breath-taking feelings are experienced during the entire parade through the most ancient streets of the city of Trapani. It’s an experience that should not be missed by those who never tried, and it is an unforgettable experience for those who attended it even only once.
