Step by Step Itinerary


Climb up from the North Tower, walk along the internal corridor that connects with the South Tower looking out over the breath-taking views of the Basilica.

South-side roofs

Experience the thrill of walking along the south side of the Cathedral as you approach a terrace overlooking the town’s historic medieval quarter.


From beneath the Mosaics, you’ll be able to examine the decorative detail of the Christ Pantocrator from a privileged view point that will enable you to lose yourself in the intricacies of this stunning work of art.


You will then enter the Sacristy where you’ll be able to admire the holy vestments that have been painstakingly embroidered in gold together with liturgical artifacts and other works of art of incalculable value.

Basilica Treasury

This unique Treasury contains singular items such as fragments of the stole belonging to King Roger II and a reliquary from the Holy Cross which houses a piece of the sacred wood.

The Bishop’s Chapel

The Bishop’s Chapel is an absolute gem housing a spectacular treasure, the Eleusa Icon, which is believed to have originated from Constantinople..

“Bellissima, specialmente adesso che permette il tour delle torri con vista di Cefalù e della chiesa dall'interno. Imperdibile per chiunque si trovi a Cefalù.”
Antonella P.
“If you spend a day or two in Cefalu the dome has to be on your list anyway. City was build around this place and it just fits in terms of architecture. Great to see, include the walk up the tower.”
Joerg F.
