Museum of the Sanctuary

The museum holds silverware, liturgical furnishings and sacred works of art linked to the cult and to the pilgrimages in honour of  Saint Vito. The wooden statue of the Immacolata, by an unknown Sicilian sculptor of the XVI century, which was originally in the Secco tonnara (tuna warehouse) is of interest. There are also donations from villages linked to the figure of Saint Vito.
From the large terrace there is an incredible view over the sea and the town; One can also observe the triangular form of the majestic tower, attached to the north-east of the sanctuary, built at the end of the XVI century, as a defence from the frequent pirate attacks.
