Today tells the story of an Ancient Greek legend. Beginning in the coastal town of Tindari, your first stop is the Sanctuary of the Black Madonna. Originally the site of Tindari Castle – which was destroyed by pirates – the sanctuary was built in the 16th century, and expanded in the late 1970s. Location-wise, it’s perched high on Mount Tindari, so you’ll be able to take in views across the Lakes of Marinello and the Tyrrhenian Sea. Inside, see the statue of the Black Madonna, and hear the myths that surround how she arrived in Tindari – as well as her fabled connection to the lagoon below the mountain. Afterwards, you’ll move on to a Greek archaeological site, for a snapshot of early Grecian life. Finally, there’ll be free time to browse the shops in Tindari.
