The Lavatoio Medievale

The Lavatoio Medievale is a point of interest in Cefalu that cannot be missed, as it’s one of the many historical landmarks that one can visit throughout the region. The story behind the Lavatoio Medievale is an ancient one, as this is the area where the women would come to wash and rinse their family’s clothing during ancient times many centuries ago.

It’s also a very refreshing spot to stand and watch the water fill up the small pools, and just imagine what life was like back then. This gorgeous historical point of interest is easily accessed by walking, and is away from the sun’s unrelenting rays. From there, the water flows into a small channel and enters the sea. From a historical standpoint, the Lavatoio Medievale is a picturesque place to be. The sweeping steps that lead down to this ancient, but so beautiful, landmark has trees that literally come out of the steps, and are a guide to another world.

If you would like to stay awhile in this area, there is even a restaurant located near the stairs that has a decent view of the sea, and great food. This attraction is perfect for those who love to visit historical landmarks, and will even entertain the children because of the small pools of water.
