Additional Location Information
The old town center, bounded by the sea and the rocky promontory, is crossed by Corso Ruggero, Cefalù main street, dotted with stores and meeting-places. If you follow it to the end, you will come to Piazza del Duomo, which is dominated by the cathedral and enclosed by lovely medieval palazzi.
The Duomo (Cathedral)
It is the great symbol of Cefalù built between 1131 and 1240 by the Norman King Roger II, its Norman character is very evident from its facade, which is framed by massive towers with pointed tips. The facade is divided into two levels by a 15th-century portico.
However, the real marvel is the inside, consisting of three naves and a wooden roof. You can't but be astonished by the Byzantine-style mosaic cycle (1148) that covers the entire apse and presbytery. At the center of the mosaics, dominated by gold and emerald green, Christ Pantocrator (Christ Almighty) delivers a blessing, as in the Palatine Chapel in Palermo and Duomo in Monreale. You can also see many other Renaissance and Baroque works of art in the Cathedral. Alongside, there is a beautiful Cloister, decorated with twin columns with sculpted capitals.
