Pellegrinaggio a Vena

This morning, bright and early, the town set off on their annual Pellegrinaggio a Vena, pilgrimage to Vena. Vena is a fraction of Piedimonte Etneo, just north 5km. The Sunday of the festa delle Madonna, devotees make this pilgrimage and share in a Church service all together. (I didn't take my camera out much today, unfortunately. I was busy walking... :)

Church service was held at 10:00 in Vena, and the church was packed! Afterwords, everyone gathered in the square and enjoyed the fresh Vena air. It was a glorious morning...
