Sicilians believes, that some long long time ago, mother lost her baby girl right from the top of the hill. While mother was taking her way down, crying and yelling to found her poor baby's body she found her on the beach playing with the sand actually alive and smiling. Local people believes in this miracle since now. They are... More

Today with my daughter Monte Pellegrino. Easy to reach despite bendy road . Reaching the first part found places to have snacks, toilet facilities and stalls with souvenirs. A road leading to the top by foot or car. Stopping at the shrine of Padrona of Palermo ( Santa Rosolie) was excellent and reachable by main square. After visit of the... More

I've been here many times, it's always so beautiful, the scenery is breathtaking, it is great to see during the day and at night, beware of the many winding roads. There's definitely a lot to see and enjoy so give yourself plenty of time to enjoy yourself.

From Palermo centre, we took bus 107 and stopped at the foot of Monte Pellegrino, at the start of Itinerarium Rosaliae: this is a path paved with stones in a regular pattern, or some patches of concrete in places - it is well maintained. Quite a steep path, and a lot of it is in the sunshine. The path goes... More

We took the bus from Palermo, which was cheap but chaotic and overcrowded! Once up the mount though, the view is stunning and the church of Santa Rosaria built into the mountainside is incredibly beautiful.

While visiting the Monte Pellegrino you need to see "The Little Chinese House". When you see it you will be amazed at the stunning edifice and the same is true once you enter and tour the rooms of this extraordinary gem of a house.(Villa?) Make certain to see the tub as it's a little hidden, but don't leave without seeing... More

Such an awesome experience. My wife and I took a hike up the trail. It was amazing! Two miles of twists and turns to the top. The views of Palermo on the way up were to die for. We walked up and saw the beautiful church and shops. Then jokes back down. Down is better lol if here and have... More

Not only on the way to visit the Sanctuary, but Montepellegrino has beautiful views anywhere you turn on the road, trees of different category and loads of cactus with fruits on it.

You can't go wrong once you've decided that you're not going to just sit on the beach all day and swim...you must visit some ancient sites and learn about the history of this great island. Take the time to drive the windy road up to Mt. Pellegrino and stop at the lookout points and snap some photos. Once you're at... More
