Cefalu Coast, Cefalu

4.5
#1 of 11 in Neighborhoods in Sicily
On the sea cliff La Rocca, you can still see the ruins of the ancient Greek settlers who were first captivated by Cefalu Coast. The hillside village is home to a long beach, hearty Sicilian cuisine, and many historic churches. The rocky peaks offer views of the Aeolian Islands. Visit the heart of the town to see a Norman cathedral with interlacing pointed arches supported by granite columns. The apse and choir bay are adorned with Byzantine mosaics. Take a walk along the cobblestone streets to find traditional Sicilian shops and delicious cooking.
