Where we are

Terre di Himera is the ideal place for anyone who wants to experience rural tourism just a few kilometres from Cefalù, in the province of Palermo. You can get there by going along the A19 Palermo-Catania motorway as far as the Buonfornello exit, and then a few kilometres on the main road to reach contrada Villaurea in the direction of the Archaeological Park of Himera.

Once you are perched on a pathway in the hills, a breathtaking view will appear between the Madonie Mountains and the gulf of Termini, with the white beaches of Campofelice di Roccella close by. The sea and the mountains combine to offer a unique landscape that only Sicily can give to the most discerning visitor.
The ideal position of Terre di Himera makes it the perfect starting point for visiting the main artistic attractions of Sicily. Cefalù, Palermo, Segesta, Selinunte, Agrigento and the most interesting natural parks: the Park of the Madonie and the Park of the Nebrodi. In fact, although Terre di Himera is surrounded by quiet countryside, it is near the A19 motorway and the Island’s main highways.
