The town of “Cefalù'” which developed around the “Cathedral of Cefalù”, commissioned by “Ruggero II”, has preserved its ancient appearance over the centuries, with its narrow streets in the historic center, typically medieval. The buildings that enrich the town are architecturally ornate, and the numerous churches, some accessible and some not accessible, present show all the importance of the bishop’s seat.
