We drove from Cefalu to Gibilmanna, and on to Castelbuono. Excellent day trip from Cefalu! Religiously important Gibilmanna was interesting and atmospheric. Not as old or historically significant as Duomo di Cefalu, but if you are going into the Madonie Park and mountains, do stop....More

Interesting place with a fascinating history. Quite a long drive from Cefalu as the road is very windy, but aren't they all? We were unlucky to visit on a very cloudy day, but the views from the belvedere in front are spectacular. Worth a trip...More

Visited with large family, we all went in to church and sat down for a peaceful time. A welcomming place, tidy and well kept outdoors.
