Area: Cefalù and Madonie
It is located in a place of great charm: the Isnello stream, which descends from the Madonie , skirts the village to the north and has created a suggestive narrow canyon between the height of the castle and the steep wall of the Montagna Grotta Grande.
Its territory has been inhabited since prehistoric times, as evidenced by the finds found in the numerous local caves. It was then under the dominion of the Punics, who called it Hassinor, of the Byzantines, who built the castle on top of a limestone ridge, and then of the Arabs who called it Menzil Al Hamar. In the Middle Ages the families of Abbate, Filangeri, Ventimiglia, Santacolomba and Licata, Princes of Baucina, succeeded one another.
The current inhabited center developed in the XIII century, around the ancient castle and is made up of narrow streets and suggestive perched houses that give the village a timeless atmosphere.
