Mandralisca Museum and its treasures

A few steps away from the cathedral, you can find the Mandralisca museum, the only museum in Cefalù, which exposes several works by artists such as Antonello da Messina or the ones of the Flemish school, but also greek archeological finds, among which vases, sarcophagi and mosaics. Inside the museum is also preserved the numismatic collection, consisting of coins from the most important ancient mints of Sicily and nearby Lipari, with Greek, Roman and Sikeliot coins, and is considered the second in the world for completeness of the series. There is also a section dedicated to the municipal library.
