Duomo di Cefalù

The cathedral of Cefalù, known as the Cathedral Basilica of the Transfiguration, is a basilica located in Cefalù, in the metropolitan city of Palermo, and cathedral of the diocese of the same name.

According to the legend, he would have emerged following the vote to the Most Holy Salvatore of Ruggero II, escaped a storm and landed on the town’s beaches. The real motivation seems rather political-military, given its character of fortress.

The constructive events were complex and was finally completed in the Swabian age. An ambulance made in the thickness of the wall and the same roof, consisting of three roofs, different era and different construction techniques, testify to the changes in the project.

The monument has a Romanesque style with Byzantine features.

Since July 3, 2015, it is part of the World Heritage Site (UNESCO) under the Palermo-Norman Route of Palermo, Cefalù and Monreale.
