Now, without further ado, I'm going to let you enjoy the sights that we saw on Sunday. Remember that everything you see is made from natural materials or bread dough:
There were 33 of these white bread symbols on Christ's and on Mary's main arches,
to symbolise the age of Christ at the Crucifixion.
And finally, who could resist this lovingly crafted bread, decorated with sesame seeds, to take home?
If you are coming to Sicily, the bread arches and other decorations in San Biagio Platini are on show until 1st May 2012.
