Festa di San Trifone (en)


On the last Sunday of July is the religious feast in honor of St. Tryphon. During this celebration the statue of the saint, depicted at a young age, with the two geese at his feet, is carried in procession through the streets of the town, between lights and fireworks. In the Chiesa Madre, dedicated to St Tryphon were an altar, a statue, a bust and a painting of the 'Glory of St. Tryphon' where the saint in the center is lifted by angels and on his head is another angel laying a wreath; in the uppermost part is the Blessed Christ. Another painting depicts the Virgin Mary of Leuca with the Blessed Child and below are Saints Joseph and Tryphon.
