Photographer's Note

In two earlier uploads I have shown what can be done on a visit to Cefal, like seeing the famous cathedral and visiting the small beach and port. So what else is there to do in this small city, less than an hour's ride by train from Palermo?

The third obvious thing is to climb La Rocca, a steep hill rising above the city which can be reached from just off the main street. At the summit are the ruins of an 11th century Norman castle built on the site of an earlier Arab citadel.

About halfway up the hill I reached a plateau where the views of the city and the sea were good enough for me. The final ascent to the summit would have involved a very steep climb, which I decided wasn't worth the effort.

In this photo you can see the "good enough" view of the brick roofs of Cefal. Here is a larger version.

In a WS are the ruins of a temple, and in another photo you will meet the King of the hill.
