Spiritual Calabria

There are several places of worship in Calabria which are destinations for a pilgrimage and surrounded by green. Their position in an isolated place make them suggestive and give to the worshippers to find the right environment to dedicate themselves to the pray. For the travellers, instead, they are the best places for enjoying unique panoramas and natural beauties.

There are many sanctuaries dedicated to San Francesco di Paola, Patron of Calabria and the fishermen, but the most important one is settled at Paola, made in 1400: here there is the cave where the Saint used to go in hermitage and for praying. He founded the Order of Minimi and built a convent which is still lived by his worshipers.

The spirituality is found in many religious rites and catholic festivity with suggestive processions and events.

The spirituality in Calabria is various thanks to the several ethnic communities who still keep alive their folkloristic and religious traditions, although they have lived here for centuries. Le Vallje of the Albanians, on every Tuesday after Easter, where people in traditional arbëresh costume dance along the street to celebrate one of the Hero Skanderberg's victory against the Turkish. Or the Pupazze di Bova (the Puppets), huge female figures created using olive leaves twisted and lead them to the Sanctuary of San Leo in procession every Palm Sunday as symbol of fertility.

Discover our proposal with day tour or weekend break for knowing more about their history and the religious events.
