Caccamo Castle

Tour Castello di CaccamoCaccamo, according to legend, was the legendary Carthage of Sicily founded by a group of soldiers Punic escaped death, after the battle at Himera in 480 a.c. Originally, the castle had to be a simply Arab watchtower on which developed later the construction of the same. One of the rooms of the manor is called "the conspiracy" because in 1160 Matteo Bonello, lord of the castle, heads the conspiracy of the Sicilian barons against William I (said Malo), even though the plot fails miserably. The Castle as defensive structure rather elementary, becomes in time a complex architecture from the typical characteristics of a fortress. Over time, it has undergone several modifications and alterations. It is now represented by the manor we admire in all its splendor and all its majesty.
The Caccamo Castle is easily reached via the highway 285 which is attached directly to the motorway exit Termini Imerese. It located in a hill about 500 meters above sea level on a rocky outcrop, on the top of Mount San Calogero, above the artificial lake Rosamarina and the bottom of the river San Leonarda valley.

For many years now the point of reference of the summer seaside tourism, the beach of Cefalù is visited each year by thousands of foreigners, mostly French and Germans who flock to the historic center and narrow streets of the old town. The skyline of the small village is dominated by the Cathedral: according to legend, it would be built after the vow made by Roger II to the Holy Saviour, to escape a storm and landed on the town's beaches; but its construction began in 1131, seems rather related to the political and defensive reasons.
The grand staircase rises on the side of the rock and leads to the front of the church, enclosed between two massive towers. The interior of the church has three naves with wooden covering divided by sixteen columns with capitals, finely embellished by the Byzantine-style mosaics cycles. In the middle is represented Christ Pantocrator who is blessing, with radiant face of light and color before Peter, James and John. Extraordinary theological synthesis not only to read but to contemplate in all its glory.
