If you have planned a trip to Western Sicily, you cannot miss a visit to Cefalù.
It is the pearl of the Tyrrhenian Sea and the gateway to the Madonie. Cefalù takes its name from the unmistakable silhouette of the head-shaped headland behind it (Kefalè = head). It’s the perfect place for a relaxing holiday, with its golden beaches and crystal-clear sea, but also if you want to indulge in cultural visits and breathe in the history of this land: the Greeks, the Byzantines, then the Normans and Arabs made this ancient seaside village unique, each leaving a trace of their own passage.
Here are the must-see attractions.
