Cefalà Diana

Province of Palermo

Cefalà Diana is included in the wonderful Nature Reserve of Bagni di Cefalà and Chiarastella.

The first settlement of Cefalà Diana was founded by Arabs, the village then prospered under the Norman domination. Later the baron Nicolò Diana acquired the feudal town in 1684, and began the construction of the current old town centre. The most important cultural attractions of this tiny village are: The Arab – Norman Castle built between the 13th and 14th century; The Church of S.Francesco di Paola; The Church of Maria SS. Addolorata.
Close to the village it is possible to visit the Nature Reserve of Bagni di Cefalà and Chiarastella which includes the marvellous Arab Spa built in the 10th century AC. It is considered the unique well preserved example of Arab thermal bath in Sicily.
