As well as many other more traditionally Italian treasures, Cefalu boasts a unique piece of Byzantine art within the walls of its towering cathedral. The most skilled Arabian mosaic artists were brought here in the 12th century to create their giant visualisation of the Transfiguration in millions of tiny pieces.
