Catenacciu Procession

Once known for its notorious banditry and rival gangs, the scenic town of Sartène has long left the grim of its past behind. However, it still maintains the historic tradition of reenacting Jesus' journey to Calvary on Good Friday each year. The town's church of St Mary displays the 35-kilogram cross and 17-kilogram chain used in the reenactment, preserving this important aspect of its history.
