  • Did the rise in rental car with local guide. The road is very narrow but the view from up there is amazing. Are 360 degrees of landscape of the city, the sea and the surrounding area. In addition, at the top of the Cave of Santa Rosalia, the patron saint of Palermo, with all your charm. Not to be missed.

  • The church and the scenery gives me peace. Can be reached through bus
  • Beautiful view of Palermo! I think it's worth to climb there!
  • Very nice place. We took sunset fotos. If you visit Palermo you should see the amazing view from the top.
  • Fantastic panoramic views. If you are going to Mondello from here, make sure not to trust Google Maps travel description. It says you need to climb down the mountain woodland to reach a road where the bus to Mondello stops. Don't do it. It is dangerous and you could die falling down the cliff you finally reach after wandering through the brushy wildlife mountain woodland, which is enough dangerous in itself to walk through. Just take the bus from the top and accept the detours and long waiting time.
  • Absolutely beautiful view. The place is a bit dirty and could be taken care of better.
