The legend tells that Rosalia retired to life as a hermit in a cave on Mount Pellegrino, where she died in 1166. In 1624 the plague haunted Palermo, and during this hardship St Rosalia appeared to a woman to whom she indicated where her remains were to be found and ordered to bring her bones through the city and the plague was defeated. Every September 4 there is a tradition of walking barefoot from Palermo up to Mount Pellegrino. ©2009
