Spelt of San Nicola

alt text Spelt of San Nicola

From 5th to 9th December 2016

The ritual of the "Spelt of San Nicola" is held on December 5th, the eve of the anniversary of the Saint, patron of the country, to commemorate the miracle that tradition attributes to San Nicola who, passing through Monteleone and shocked by the poverty of its inhabitants, decided to give the poor the spelt. The permanence of this unique ritual has favored the continuity of its culture in Monteleone, much to become a characteristic feature of this area.
