DISCOVERING CEFALU'

One of the most beautiful countries in the world

The Cathedral

The Cathedral, built in 1131 by Ruggero, is the flagship of the magnificent Norman town. Its history, full of traditions and culture, is told and known all over the world.

The "Lavatoio"

The Medieval Washhouse of Cefalù is located along Corso Vittorio Emanuele, the road that runs along the coast of Cefalù. It houses the mouth of the river Cefalino that after having made an underground path of about twelve kilometers reaches the sea level right near the wash house.

Mandralisca Museum

The Mandralisca Museum is the only museum in the city of Cefalù. The foundation is owed to the baron Enrico Piraino of Mandralisca, who collected, in his short life (1809-1864), numerous objects of art, putting them in his home, where they still are. The archives of the museum and foundation can also be found in the premises, on the basis of which it is possible to reconstruct the history of the institution in detail.
