Saw many turned away including myself because it started to rain a little. When raining the steps are slippy so the walk is closed. Need to know before the steep walk to the entrance.

The Cefalu Rock is an inexpensive 1 hour train journey from Palermo and well worth the visit. Once a place of worship, castle and fortified town, it's now a place where goats may gently graze, pretty much as they have done for millenia. The start...More
