Santa Lucia

The town was thus named after an extraordinary event in which a devout farmer, struck by a serious illness affecting his eyes, was healed after praying at length to the saint.

On his initiative, supported by the enthusiasm of the faithful, the small church was dedicated to St. Lucia, the 4th-century Siracusa-born virgin and martyr. Since then, her saint’s day has been celebrated here annually.
