  • We cycled to the tops then down the other side to Mondello beach. A wonderful climb and a coffee shop and view at the top to Die for! Heaven  more »
  • Go there for the views, beautiful from various places: either ascending towards the shrine, both from the large Esplanade which continues for a few kilometers after the main space occupied by sellers of souvenirs. Go here for the fresh air and fine, and for the silence that you can enjoy. Go there if you are religious because it is also a sacred place.
