We actually went to Narcao for one of the traditional-type festas they have here on the island but I'd read about Tratalias and suggested a quick side trip to my husband. NOT TO BE MISSED. The old village of Tratalias has been kept beautifully and this church could have been built quite recently, it's in such good condition and a perfect example of the architecture from those times. The village still had lots of visitors, even at this time of year, but it was a Sunday, so quite a lot of things were closed. Certainly a place we must revisit.

Came across this as went to restaurant in the village. An untouched village with surrounding views and a small well kept piazza.

Been on top of several mountains but this one is beyond magical. It is heavenly. You can see the Black Madonna here and if you are lucky can hear and see the Monserrat Boys Choir sing in one of their masses. The view on the way up is something that will not leave your memory for the rest of your life. It is one of those wonders in Italy.

Wonderful day-vendors giving away cheese and bread---you can buy also !!! The church is spectacular and the music the boys emote is thrilling- There are wonderful gift shops and gourmet food shops where you can buy gifts and sandwiches(YUM!!!!) A wonderful ride up to the mountain and the vistas incredible-but, let someone else drive---narrow roads and a bit tricky- Give yourself a few hours---also the site of the Black Madonna-- very busy!!!Enjoy!
