WHAT WE CAN SEE IN THE ISLAND OF LIPARI:
THE CATHEDRAL OF ST BARTHOLOMEW
The Cathedral of St. Bartholomew was built
by Count Roger, who made a donation to
Brother Ambrose, who was appointed the first
abbot of all the Aeolian Islands. This
donation was confirmed by Roger II in 1134.
THE ARCHAEOLOGICAL PARK
The archaeological area of Contrada Diana in
Lipari extends into the vast plain bounded
to the east by the city center, to the west
by the slopes, to the south by the Vallone
Ponte and to the north by the Vallone S.
Lucia. To the wide area of the park belongs
the fenced area adjacent to the Bishop's
Palace, located south
of via Diana (now Marconi), and other small
archaeological sites nearby.
The archaeological area of Contrada Diana
was established in 1971 as a result of
excavations conducted by Luigi Bernaḅ Brea
and Madeleine Cavalier, which had revealed a
long stretch of the old Greek city walls of
the fourth century BC. The idea of the Park
was of the Bishop's Curia and the
Municipality of Lipari, in order to create a
green lung for the town.

beautiful in Sicily, display all its
