dividing line

The Cefalù Cathedral represents a definitive dividing line between the Norman architecture of the past and with Sicilian architecture. In Cefalù, there are influences from Northern Europe, which can also be traced back to the second reconstruction of the Basilica of Cluny, together with elements of Arab and Byzantine culture. In Cefalù, the adherence to the Cistercian style of architecture is even more evident, the latter having already been imported into Calabria by the Normans.
