... in a grotto near the top of Mt Pelegrino. We did a quick whip around of a few other buildings and then headed out of town. September is the month of pilgrimage for Saint Rosalie and pilgrims walk up the hill to the church built over her grotto. The really devoted walk on their knees.

Lunch done we headed to the beach to lap up some sun and have a play in the clear blue sea. All along the beach you can rent sun loungers and parasols, we paid 10 Euros for half a days rental of two fluorescent pink loungers and a matching parasol. San Vito is well worth a visit, if you ...
