Cefalù

Cefalù

 

A magnificent medieval village, located on a small promontory and dominated by the majestic Rocca, Cefalù attracts thousands of tourists each year, enchanted by its beautiful landscapes and architectural beauties. Just the Rock is one of the most appreciated attractions for its imposing appearance that looks like the Duomo, a splendid example of different architectural styles, now embedded within Arab-Norman itineraries and which became part of the World Heritage Sites of 2015 . The fortress, also called "u castieddu", boasts an invaluable treasure made up of remains of temples, churches and ruins, surrounded by unspoiled and wild nature. If you are visiting Cefalù you will walk the promontory trails. The panorama reached the summit, about 270 meters above sea level, and will pay you back to work. Walking through the historic center, however, you will be welcomed by narrow streets and lanes of a clear medieval setting surrounded by civil and religious buildings that remind you of how Cephalos were prey to Greeks, Romans, Arabs and Normans, peoples who left their mark in the city. Impressions can be seen, for example, in the medieval washroom rather than in the other worship buildings or in the city wall, which is to be visited by the romantic Sea Gate with its splendid glimpse of the sea. The gulf in which Cefalù is located boasts a crystal clear sea and a wide variety of beaches, small and suggestive coves that make up a coastline to discover. Many activities to be done during your stay in Cefalù: the city has for several years voted for its economy in tourism, offering various services to visitors and trying to entertain them with shows and events that find in the city's artistic and architectural beauties their ideal frame.
