Cefalu Italy poster print
Just an hour away from Palermo, Cefalu is one of the most popular spots on the island of Sicily. Despite having a population of just 14,000 residents Cefalu is visited by millions of tourists every year from all over Europe.
The name Cefalu comes from the Greek word Cape which nods to the towns beginnings when Greeks settled there around 396 BC. After a few shifts in power, the area finally became part of the Kingdom of Italy in 1861. Today, a lot of its previous medieval charm can still be seen along its winding streets, as well as the iconic Duomo di Cefalu. This is a Roman Catholic Basicila in the centre of Cefalu dating back to the 12th century and built using Norman-style architecture. According to local legend, King Roger II was caught in a storm at sea and vowed to build a church if he were saved. The sand-coloured building makes a striking addition to the towns skyline, looking more like a fortress than a castle.
One of the towns main tourist attractions is its beach - long, sandy and very inviting, unlike many Italian coastal resorts, it gets very busy in the high summer months of July and August. Another is its abundance of delicious seafood; that is often enjoyed along the beachfront.
