  • Arrived to the square, one cannot overlook the terrace to greet the sea and the Aeolian Islands from above. You enter the sanctuary and you are immersed in prayer to the Black Madonna. On the sides of the altar there is the passage the ancient Sanctuary, which to me is more suggestive to pray; from there it goes to the window of the legend of the Madonna of Tindari, that not telling you read on site; Obviously it is a miracle that gives an important life lesson. Leaving the Sanctuary you can go and visit the archaeological site, where you notice another breathtaking and it is interesting to have an essay the life of thousands of years ago out of place.
