Cefalú & Bagheria
Cefalú is known for its tradicionalism, therefore it is a touristic point, luckily out off season it is calm. The town is nice and well maintained, it is really energizing for the body and the spirit walking in the narrow streets. Here can be found the oldest normann catherdral in Sicily (the construction started in 1140), but we could only see it from outside. If you have time, I offer the La Rocca pike, where the fortress ruins and the view are breathtaking. Coming back from Cefalu we stopped in Bagheria, and we visited the famous Villa Palagonia aka. “The Villa of Monsters”. It was a great experience, I have never seen a building similar to this (inside and outside). Already the garden and its wall with the statues of monsters with human face and with the orange trees and the beautiful big flowers gave out an interesting and weird but pleasing combination. The inside is also unusual with an impressing marble central room, you can get lost in the sight, surprising murals, it is truly unique and spectacular.Nata
