Cefalù: the Temple of Diana and the primitive cult of water

Visiting the Fortress of Cefalù, you can see the remains of an ancient Norman castle. But before this place became a military outpost with a defensive function, what was the Fortress hiding? Even today we rediscover the ancient function of this area by visiting the Temple of Diana, dating back to the fifth century BC. The construction of the city walls, also Greek, dates back to the same period. But before the Greeks built their Temple? What was in this area? Few people know that the Temple was actually built on the basis of an older building, a pre-existing megalithic construction in dolmenic stone, dating back to the 9th century BC. What construction? A cistern. A very ancient cistern that testifies to the presence of a primitive water cult.
