  • After a day at the beach to the Marinello Lakes, we went to the sanctuary of Tindari. Arrived at the parking lot we left the car and took the shuttle bus that escorted us to a few hundred metres from the sanctuary. The view from up there is wonderful, you see the tongue of land that form the lakes and in the background can be seen the Islands. The sanctuary is majestic, imposing from the outside. Upon entering, then, you can see the beauty: beautiful frescos and then the black madonna, really impressive. Behind the sanctuary again you can also visit the old sanctuary, which is also very impressive. The visit is definitely recommended.
