The small location that is tucked in between a little crook in a hill right close to Cefalu in Sicily is fabulous. Only five kilometres away from Cefalu, it’s a chance to walk into what seems like a completely different century.
Cefalu offers you beauty of a fishing port that is ancient with wonderful cathedrals that are Romanesque in design. However, it’s full of tourist, and getting much busier. Sant’Ambrogio is not at all, in fact the life in this little location is much the same as it was in the last 500 years. Where you can still find old man sitting on the beach in rows, while wives are sitting gossiping on the steps of their houses.
While the girls will watch the boys from afar acting as if they are not even noticing you, the boys pose around their vehicles! You will find the priest who is going across the piazza on his way to work, while the cats walk in the alleys.
It’s often touted as a real “experience”, and if you want to see it, stop by this little village. It may not be this way for long where you can view olive trees, pines and fruit trees among a rural setting. But there are so many fabulous things to see in Sant’Ambrogio, it’s really a stop you should take to view for yourself!
