not as impressive as the ones in Palermo but still a lovely church to go and see - nice to sit out the front and look up at it

We had a wonderful trip up the mountain, with gorgeous views along the way to this gorgeous church, so serene & peaceful. Bring a picnic lunch to have outside the grounds while you're there!

A top this mountain in the Madonie mountains there is this sanctuary. It has an old church, convent and beautiful views of the mountains. My husband and I always visit when we go to Sicily since our hometown in next to this place. A few nights we went to the restaurant that they have on the premises. We were 16 people and we all ordered different varieties of pizza. I tried the quartro formaggio (4 cheese), with garlic. It was excellent!!!. They even have Karaoke. So we sang and danced and had a great time. Don't know if this restaurant is opened during the day since the Italians eat dinner very late at night.

You can look around but beware that if you are wearing shorts or T shirts that do not cover your shoulders that you will not be allowed in.So either dress according or have a sorong and wrap to put around your shoulders.Or just stand outside and poke your head inside.Beware the stones in front of the church are uneven and lots of it are missing shame really.

Dozens of hairpins, narrow bends, great views.
Total silence at the monastery.
But nothing really special, unless you are a real church fan.

Its worth for, trekking lovers, start from Cefalù and take, with a local guide or tour organised by CAI CEFALU' (Club Alpino Italiano), the steepy footpath that brings to the Sanctuary after 15 km. of hard walk with ever changing Panorama and bushes of the Madonie Park that host 65-70% of fauna and biodiversity of Sicily.
The faith of people of Cefalù is a big support to the few old monks that serve with few volunteers the pilgrims,.
The building host structure is not beautiful but the courtyard, of monastery ,the little interesting museum,the library,the monks house are beautiful examples of old stone houses. The Via Crucis steps are worth to climb but lamps are all broken,
Few hours here shall bring peace and serenity in your minds.

Arrived during a service, sat quietly looking at the interesting features. The priest's sermon was interesting to listen to.

We made an afternoon trip from Cefalú to Santuario Gibilmanna. It is around 15 kilometers away in a hilly road. I love driving in this kind of roads, but my family was not so happy (I do not recommend to go if anyone in your car gets easily sick in winding roads).

The scenery from the Santuario was simply amazing, it make the trip worthy. However I was not impress with the church.

Our visit to this church - sadly very unimpressed - part of the altar area had scaffolding - very little to see in the church - the windows were nothing like stained glass windows - and people asking for money at each of the step entrances on the way in and again on the way out is annoying to say the least - sorry but not impressed.
