  • When poor Sicilians couldn't afford doctors their only resort was their faith and a pilgrimage up Mount Pellegrino to Saint Rosalia's sanctuary. The views driving up are spectacular for tourists...

  • A very interesting experience. You can get to it by car or by bus 812 from Politeama. It's a 30 min drive. The bus schedule is available in any tourist info center. I suggest getting of at the sanctuary and after visiting it take a stroll up the road, through the forest, and you will arrive at at the top of Monte Pelegrino. The most breathtaking vista awaits you.
  • To get there you have to take bus number 812 (be careful - hours of departure are +/- 30 minutes 😅). Views from the bus are really impressive! From the bus it takes 2 minutes by walk and you can see a beatiful Sanctuary hidden in a cave. Also nearby (10 minutes walking) is a viewpoint where you can see the whole city of Palermo.
