Cefalù, a small town in the province of Palermo, is one of the major centers of Italian tourism. Famous for its blue sea, Cefalù is included in the club of the most beautiful towns in Italy.
The feast of San Salvatore is the most important festival and has very ancient origins. The people of Cefalù believe that San Salvatore saved them from the earthquake and from cholera.
Particularly striking is the so-called "Tinna at sea", a game that consists of a pole over the water, attached to the dock of the Old Port with a flag bearing the image of San Salvatore hanging on its end. The pole is lathered with soap and fat, becoming the focus of competition among the young people in Cefalù. The winner, after several attempts, grabs the flag and shouts "Long live Christ the Savior" and dives into the water, starting off the long festivities. These are the moments in history and tradition that make Cefalù a rich center that conveys authentic emotions.
