Situated on the northern coast of Sicily, Cefalu is both historical town and seaside resort. Greeks, Romans and Saracens have all left their mark on the maze of medieval streets, old royal palaces and fisherman's houses leading down to the ancient harbour. Cefalu flourished under the Norman rule of King Roger II who built the splendid Romanesque cathedral that dominates the town. This 12th century cathedral features one of the finest Byzantine mosaics in the world. The Mandralisca museum is also worth a visit and below the old town is a fine sandy beach for swimming. From here go inland to peaceful Castelbuono, lying in woods on the slopes of the Madonie Mountains. Dominated by a 14th century fortress castle, the town's architecture owes much to the northern Italian influences of the Princes of Ventimiglia.
