Tourism in Blufi
Pretty village, Blufi is a new village clung on mounts of Madonie and it is just this which is reflected in architecture of buildings of the place and they have still now the typical model of Sicilian mountainous centres.
In climbing a steep mule-track which has formed in time because of passing of innumerable foreigns, it gets to magnificent Sanctuary of Madonna dell'Olio in which sacred and traditional elements are united with typical characteristics of natural environment.

Next to Sanctuary there is a little cave excavated in the rock from which a mineral oil almost miraculously gushes out.
Therapeutical properties for care of particular skin diseases have been attributed to it.
Every year it is destination of great crowd of pilgrims devoted to Madonna and it also enjoys a beautiful panoramic sight.
