The only surviving door (out of our) along the walls of Cefalu. It may now seem just a door but the view over the beach is excellent and a nice spot to take pics. Worth a look.

This doorway down to the beach was apparently one of four at one time. It is quite unremarkable and if it weren't in all the guide books, nobody would give it a second glance.

Friday afternoon's stroll after lunch took us here. Quick walk in the sand with my 2YO son to see the incoming tide reminded me of why this area is sought-after for the views.

Lovely scenery, both looking at Cefalu as looking the other way; to the sea. The two arches give a great decor for photo’s.

The gate is not really much but Cefalu is all about the atmosphere, not about major things, so don't miss it and take a cool picture with the sea in the background. With or without your significant other ;)

The Porta Pescara archway makes a nice frame for some wonderfully photogenic shots of Cefalu town's beach, while from the beach itself, the old houses on the shore are reminiscent of Venice or Mykonos' "Little Venice" area. The town beach, although small, is welcoming, clean...More
