If you happen to be strolling idly around the streets of Palermo on a sunny Sunday afternoon, wondering where everyone has gone, you could do worse than go join them, at Monte Pellegrino.  It’s another of Palermo’s secrets but, take a picnic with you and you too can indulge.  Here, you will find a quaint little chapel dedicated to the memory of the town’s guardian, Santa Rosalla, who lived most of her life in a cave on the mountain.

Even without a visit to the chapel though, the journey up the mountain is worthwhile just for the views afforded from the peak. The area is a nature reserve and very popular, so parking can be limited at certain times, although a bus will make the journey in around half an hour from Politeama at the base of the mountain.

Those of a more ambitious disposition could always hike the mountain, by following the stepped path that runs all the way to the top.  But whichever way you choose to get there, get there if you can.  Your efforts will be rewarded with fine views of the Golden Shell Valley and the deep blues of the Tyrrhenian Sea.
