Tindari

We are happy to be able to leave this place. My foot is more or less ok. My camera is not usable but I have a small camera as a spare.

Tindari is one of the most visited place of pilgrimage of Sicily. Also today it is quite busy.

There is “Black Madonna” in the church. The legend says, the boat saving the statue from being destroyed in Byzanz ran ashore on this coast. It could only sail again after the Madonna was brought ashore. She had found her place…

Much more interesting I find the huge mosaics on both sides of the nave.

From up here the view to the lagoon is wonderful.

For the first time on this trip we  have a beautiful sunset.
