  • According to Cefalù it seemed appropriate to visit the sanctuary of Gibilmanna, not least because of considerable renown. The road is uphill with switchbacks tight but with little traffic. The weather was gloomy with fog for which the end i.e. on arrival shortly we saw, also because of rain. I must confess that the shrine is in a lovely location but isolated, high up in the Woods, but perhaps not the best time to visit you. Everything was closed, Church, bar, restaurant, hotel. The Park was so short, because it was dark and you couldn't see living soul. To think that in summer is a place of pilgrimage and festivals ... Too bad.

  • It's quite a drive from Cefalu (about 14km) but worth it. It's a lovely church, and important Marian sanctuary, and great countryside. 
  • As the Zeil is the sanctuary of Gibilmanna, on a winding mountain road. In between incredible views of Cefalù on the sea and a touch and a fragrance of nature with flowers, fruits, and other small surprises. The Church is beautiful and sure specifically. Here, you should be safe on a Sunday or a day on pilgrimage with no Bell, no organ, perfect peace today. Sure, it would be also a good starting point for a hike with good Footwear.

  • You simply must visit Gibilmanna - great place!
  • Sanctuary beautiful and well cared for. Leads to prayer, meditation and contemplation. The strategic position within the Madonie National Park makes it one of the most charming places I've ever visited. Even religious ceremonies are well-run and engaging in their sobriety. It is worth to go there.

  • If you are on holiday in Cefalù recommend to visit this Sanctuary which is only 20 minutes by car. Surrounded by greenery, offers a moment of silence and meditation. Shame we could not visit the monastery Museum, as it was closed for lunch. Maybe for the tourists who come specifically, you should do every day.

  • Bel panorama that sweeps up in Palermo, very beautiful Baroque altar (not the main one, the one on the left) that originally was in the Cathedral of Palermo, finely inlaid coloured marble

  • Peace, tranquility and a wonderful view. from the sanctuary you can admire much of Palermo being 800 metres above sea level. If you continue to climb the view definitely improves because of the Madonie. The Church visited on weekdays is quiet and there is virtually none, formerly a Benedictine monastery. Makes the visit in spring or summer.
