UNESCO city heritage

Cefalù, one of the most beautiful villages in Italy, is one of the top destinations of the island. It is located on the northern coast of Sicily, about 70 km from Palermo. It is a UNESCO city heritage since 2015 and it is full of art and beautiful sceneries.

Every year Cefalù attracts so many local, national and foreign tourists who, during summertime, triple the population.
The old Roman name of the city, Cephaloedium, derives from the Greek Kefalé which means “top/ extremity” referring to the Rock that dominates the city.

The sea has always been a huge resource for Cefalù: during the past it was the main resource for fishermen and nowadays it is one of the reasons why tourists visit this wonderful city. Fishing is still in use among Cefalù population.
