The Museum In Cefalu A Nice Day To Explore Cefalu History

Museo Mandralisca in Cefalu, Siciliy COMMISSIONED FOR INTELLIGENT LIFE

If you visit Cefalu, the wonderful and beautiful location in Sicily, there is a must see spot, it’s the museum.  A place where you can find wonderful art, and so much more.  The Museo Mandralisca is a spot that will have any visit to this location topped with seeing some of the best art in the area, and some once hidden treasures.

Cefalu used to be a location that very few people knew about, but now it’s become the spot to vacation!  With beaches, mountains, and beauty beyond any expectation, it’s really a spot to visit at least one time in your life, if not many!

You’ll find the museum down a short side street, and not at all too far from the location of the cathedral.  The collection is wonderful and was placed thanks to the work of Enrico Piraino (1809-64), he was the Baron of Mandralisca.  A man who loved archaeology and was an amateur, he helped in excavating the island Lipari.

Perhaps one of the greatest treasures you’ll find in the museum is the Ignoto Marinaio, painted by Antonello da Messina.  With only a few of his paintings having survived to modern day, it’s quite nice to see one of the dozen that is left in this museum.  If you visit the Museo Mandralisca you have a chance to see this masterpiece among many other wonderful works of art!

My Visit in Cefalu

Linda Lindforff is the name, and you can find my blog at  I’ve been visiting Cefalu for many years, and this year I stayed at a fabulous villa named Villa Borghetto.  This place was the best I’ve seen in many locations.

As you can see from all the pictures we were near a beach and the kids and I got to enjoy them each day we stayed in Cefalu.  The people in this location are the best too, so friendly and pleasant, willing to help you with just about anything.

Plus the museum in the area gave me a chance to share the local culture and history with the kids as well.  Talk about a well-rounded trip of not only fun, but education as well!

If you are looking for a new vacation spot, check out Cefalu too.  You’ll find the beaches are fabulous, the scenery is wondrous, and the people are second to none.  Try and stay at the same villa as we did, you won’t be sorry!

Our Norwegian friend in Cefalu

Frode visited Cefalu many years in a row, ten to be exact.  He loved the change from Norway to Sicily, and decided to buy some land in 2012.  On that land he is building his retirement home, and will move there when he is done with his working years.  The reasons he picked Cefalu is because it’s beautiful, and he has met so many great people over the past 10 years during his stays.  He now feels like this is his home away from home, and soon it will be his new home!  Frode had all his dreams come true, maybe you can too, plan a stay at Cefalu and see what he’s enjoyed so many times!



A nice stay with friends
