Sanctuary of the Madonna di Tindari reviews
You can see the basilica on the top of the hill from miles around and it's well worth stopping off for a visit. You can't drive up into the town so you have to park in a large car park at the bottom..... more »
Beautiful church. Make sure you walk also behind the Black Madonna to see the history of the statue in mosaics. more »
Lets put it down to taste... The church was richly decorated, but I found it so over the top. It was a 60 minute detour for us and we arrived after the archological site closed, so all we could visit was the church. That did tip it to a negative for me.
Beautiful air, breath taking view from Tindari. The church very nicely built and strict with clothing. No hats , no sun glasses, no mini skirts, no sleeveless. Silent during prayer moments. Beautiful place.
