Big Day Out (1) Cefalu Cathedral

Today was the big (15 hours long!!!!!) conference excursion day, and we were taken by bus to first to Cefalu, on the northern coast, with its magnificent cathedral dating back to the 12th century, and then to Monreale where there was another from the same period, but even grander.

Both feature gigantic golden mosaics of Christ Pantocrator (ruler of all) in their central apses, and were built by the Normans.

Rather than tell you about our day, I’ll let some of my photos tell the story.
