The Postierla of Cefalù, or small back door, is an opening carved into the megalithic walls, the ancient fortifications of the Greek era. The opening was made so that the inhabitants could more easily reach a freshwater spring that emerged just a few meters from the sea. This place was known to all sailors since Greek times, because they could get water without leaving the boat. An inscription on a rock recalls that at the end of the 1500s, Captain of Arms Lucio Velasco made the place more convenient for public access.
