We found this place by accident while visiting Cefalu. It is fabulous in that it is rich in history and views of the area. One of the staff named Carmelo was just stellar! He gave us a personal tour and was so kind to us. This man is a gem, and has worked there for 30 years and knows EVERYTHING about it. The site needs more tourist investment by the government so they can really turn it into a showcase of Sicilian/Siculian/Greek history.

Well signposted from the motorway. Although on a hillside, it is easy enough to get around.This was originally a Siculian city and submitted to the Romans in the First Punic war. It is not a particularly large site, but has some very interesting features. Firstly, the site museum, although tiny, has a very rare bronze dedicatory tablet from the Temple of Apollo. We were shown around the museum by a very enthusiastic guardian. The highlights of the site are the agora, which has replica statues in the niches, and the remarkable columbarium with its diamond-patterned stonework. Sadly, much of the site is neglected, although where there is signage, it is very informative. Worth visiting for that alone.

Now in February 2024, the ticket booth has been cleared out.
Admission is free. A map shows the excavation sites.
The paths are overgrown - nature is coming back.
There are better maintained excavation sites, but they do not have the charm of a forgotten excavation site.
There is a little adventure in the mild air.
The excavation site is relatively extensive.
We saved ourselves the longer walk to the Apollo Temple because the path there was not clearly visible. Almost all of the former paths are overgrown.
For those who want to go further along the paths, we have already prepared a little.
Since we were the only visitors, we experienced this excavation site very differently and felt a little like explorers.
When the weather is nice, it is worth a visit.
You just have to be careful not to sprain your foot on the overgrown paths.
