  • Montepellegrino is the Monte di Santa Rosalia! Patron Saint of Palermo! But after a mandatory visit to the sanctuary just make another kilometre to find yourself in a magnificent lookout! From Mondello in Palermo and the whole city Mongerbino, azure sea that only Sicily can offer! On days when the air is clear you can see the horizon even the island of Ustica. For those who love photography can create unforgettable shots!

  • Of course the definition is not mine but of the great Goethe. It is really a lovely place that represents a visual reference to the of Palermo ones and major affective. For centuries the mountain of Santuzza (santa Rosalia, the patron saint of the city) and therefore a place of pilgrimage, but it's also a place where you can enjoy a splendid panorama.

  • When I go to Palermo, a run starting from via Monte pellegrino I do I ever Miss, I love this place and its boshi, alas over the years the incoria of people and lack of education make it at some points a dump, but the hill with its hairpin bends overlooking the sea are spectacular from the top you can enjoy a beautiful view of the Bay of Mondello
