The Feast of St. George
The Feast of St. George, which takes place in Ragusa Ibla on the last Sunday of May, is a religious event highly felt by the locals. On Good Friday the simulacrum of St. George and the Holy Ark leave the Cathedral to reach the Church of Purgatory until reaching the Church of St. Thomas. The Saturday procession, on the other hand, takes the opposite route. The most awaited moment of this festival is the so-called “Ballad of the Saint”: the bearers of the saint raise it to the sky with outstretched arms, to the call of “All Trounu” to indicate that it is the patron saint of the city.
