Castle on the Sea on the Gulf

During this week of Ferragosto, many towns celebrate their patron saints, an act of devotion meant to thank them for the abundance received during the harvest season. Celebrations of the Virgin Mother are especially common. For example, in Castellammare del Golfo, pictured, this weekend they will celebrate Maria S.S. del Soccorso, which you can read more about at https://experiencesicily.com/2016/08/20/super-saint-maria-ofto-the-rescue/ from last year’s post.
