The Cathedral of Cefalù (or Duomo di Cefalù), is one of the names by which the Cathedral of the Transfiguration is known.
It is said to have been built as a result of a vow to the Holy Saviour by Count Roger II, who, having escaped a storm and landed on the town’s shores, wished to give thanks for the good outcome of the bad experience in 1131.
Looking at it, one realises how much it has been modified from time to time.
Today, it stands as a Romanesque-style monument with clearly Norman and Byzantine features.
On 3 July 2015, it was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, as part of the Arab-Norman Itinerary of Palermo, Cefalù and Monreale.
