|The town of Ciminna
Tourism in Ciminna
Cimmina has kept intact in time its original medieval town aspect. Still now are visible picturesque curtyards and characteristic little streets bordered by great and simple houses, built round an ancient Norman rural house.
Also the sumptuos Cathedral Church built in 1500, is symbol of linear Norman architecture.
It has outside a splendid rose window and on side a imposing bell-tower with quadrangular plan in Gothic style.
Inside it are visible three naves on columns and an inlaid wood ceiling in Baroque style.
