On 19 October in Itri we celebrate St. Paul of the Cross, the founder of the Order of the Passionists, with very heartfelt ceremonies that develop along the weekend that includes the date. From the beginning of the month the statue of the saint is arranged in such a way as to be clearly visible.
Saint Paul had been a hermit for several months at the Sanctuary of Civita, in 1726, and in the hermitage of the Madonna della Catena in Gaeta.
