Food Experience in a Lovely Location plus Cefalu, part of the Beautiful Regional Park of the Madonie.
Cefalu’s Cathedral is a 12th century Arab-Norman monument (World Heritage Site). Palm trees soften the sturdy Norman lines. And tourist’s shirts are filling the city hall piazza before it. The two towers of the wonderful old cathedral stand high over the roofs of the town. And above all the great rock, the Rocca. Dominating all in the apse is the great golden mosaic of the Christ Pantocrator. Moreover it has often been described as unsurpassed by any other representation of Christ.
