Italy - Sicily - Cefalù - Dusk on the Shores of the Ancient City
One of the Mediterranean's undiscovered jewels. The epitome of picturesque grandeur, captivating seaside town in the shadow of a steep mountain. Cefalu has a beach, winding, narrow, medieval streets, and delightful restaurants overlooking a rocky coast. All under the everpresent gaze of the Norman-Arab-Byzantine cathedral, one of the greatest churches of southern Europe. Nestled between the Madonie Mountains and the sea, Cefalù's mountain boasts the ruins of a large fortress and an ancient Sicanian-Greek temple. On the northern coast, 75 kilometers east of Palermo, from which it is about forty-five minutes by car, Cefalù (with the accent on the last syllable) is a medieval town built on the site of an ancient Sicanian and Greek settlement. In fact, its name derives from the Greek word for a cape; the ancient city was called Cephaloedion.
