The Sanctuary of the Black Madonna in Tindari is a well-known pilgrimage in southern Italy.
The Sanctuary, overlooking the sea and situated right at the edge of a promontory, offers a beautiful sight.
The wooden carved Statue of a Black Madonna is a draft for thousands of tourists and pilgrims alike.
But there are other sights worth discovering, such as the archaeological site of Tindari. The archeological remains of the city with two square towers and the Greek theatre boast fantastic views over the sea, the Aeolian islands and the natural reserve of the small Marinello lakes.
There are many legends going around the Black Madonna and how this beautiful sight got created, but we won't tell you, you'll have to find out yourself and maybe come back here and tell us what you've heard.
