  • This is just amazing we stayed in Camping Marinella and could not get enough of this magnificent views and to kill our curiosity we ended up going all the way up there to visit and it was worth ever....  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.
