The Sanctuary of Madonna of Tindari


The Sanctuary raises on the acropolis of Tindari, short distant from the old sanctuary which has been rebuilt after having been destroyed in 1544 by marauders led by Ariadeno Barbarossa (1465-1546).


New temple, with Latin cross plan and built between 1956 and 1979, shows a basilican plan charecterized by three naves divided by columns covered with valuable marble.

Main nave ends into a cavity covered by a dome supported by a wall building typical of Renaissance and Baroque architecture of churches.

Cross aisle, shorter than the others, gives depth to the structure.

The area of sanctuary dedicated to clergy, just a little apart from area reserved to believers, is enriched with mosaics of valuable workmanship and keeps an elegant and important altar.

Behind high-altar there is a shrine supported and crowned by bronze angels and keeps a wooden statue which represents the very beautiful Black Our Lady in Byzantine style, of oriental origin.
