Duomo di Cefalu, Cefalu
Categories: Churches, Historic Sites, Tourist Spots
Built after a vow made by the King of Sicily Roger II, Duomo di Cefalu is a Roman Catholic cathedral constructed in the Norman style. The basilica's fortress-like appearance looms over the medieval town, heralding the powerful presence of the Normans and the city's vulnerability to attack by sea. Pass through a large terraced parvise, or enclosed porch, that was once a cemetery with earth imported from Jerusalem. The spires of the two Norman towers on the cathedral's facade don't match. One symbolizes the papal authority, and the other is a symbol of royal authority. Michele Canzoneri designed the modern, abstract stained-glass windows in 1985.

Я не любитель подобного. Но посмотреть его стоит сходить. Пейзаж украшает скала. Рядом симпатичная площадь Зайти внутрь можно.I'm not a fan of such. But show its worth. Landscape is decorated with rock. Next cute area you can go inside.show original

No te podes perder visitar el Duomo y su plaza, tanto de dia como de noche iluminado . Majestuoso en su altura y su arquitectura medieval. Es del 1100 . Impecable !!!!You can not miss visiting the Duomo and its square, both day as lit night. Majestic in its height and its medieval architecture. It is the 1100. Impeccable!show original
I think it's now been designated a UNESCO building. Even if it hasn't, it's worth a visit, as is the rest of town. You should also try the walk up the imposing rock behind!

Nice Normand style Cathedral. One of the top attractions of Cefalù, with cafes nearby where you can sit and relax. Recommended._
The wonderful cathedral is actually an icon of the transfiguration of Jesus Christ. I love it!
Beautiful church, with interesting mosaics. Be sure to visit Palermo too, you'll see the relations. The town surrounding is very worth the visit. Easy to reach by train.
Great church with mix design . Like a laboratory of religion . Strong domination as Normand influence . Must be seen
