Aleister Crowley House

information about italy  Cefalu - Italy

Sicily Island is a country in itself. There is plenty of history and wonderful places to visit.
In my opinion, the places that you should not miss in Sicily are: Palermo, of course, Siracusa, Catania, Agrigento and Cefalu.
In Cefalu you can get cheap boats to the Eolie Islands.

When I visited Cefalu some people told me about the house where an English mystic of the XX century (and also a Himalaya climber), named Aleister (Alexander) Crowley, lived some years and called it Abbey of Theleme (based in Rabelais imaginary ideal society), and learnt that it was abandoned after Mussolini expelled him from Italy because of his esoteric practises. Anyway I went up there just for curiosity, near the stadium premises, and saw the original house with the roof destroyed, walled by the local authorities in order to prevent people from entering, and full with grasses and herbs almost covering it. Inside there are frescoes that are very appreciated by Crowley followers of his ideas.

Address: up Cefalu close to the stadium
