Custonaci

Sanctuary

Custonaci is the city of marble and presents itself as the first marble basin in Sicily, the second in Italy and Europe. The town is near an area of great naturalistic interest, the Oriented Natural Reserve of Mount Cofano, with rough, uncontaminated sea bays: it can be explored through pathways which offer panoramic views of unmatchable beauty. In the suggestive natural cavern of the Mangiapane Cave in Scurati, uses, customs and traditions of early twentieth century Sicily are relived during the Presepe Vivente – Living Nativity Scene (Christmas) and during the Museo Vivente – Living Museum (Summer). Not to be missed in the summer are the celebrations in honour of the Madonna of Custonaci, with the disembarkation in the sea of a copy of the much venerated painting of the Virgin Mary, the original of which dates back to the XV century, and is kept in the Sanctuary of the same name
