Petralia Soprana


In the heart of the Madonie Mountains we encounter Petralia Soprana, a natural balcony from which to admire the majestic panorama. In fact, there are three scenic viewpoints in the village: the Loreto belvedere, from which you can see Mount Etna, Enna, Caltanissetta and the Imera river valley; the Carmine belvedere, with a view of western Sicily towards Palermi; and the Piazza Duomo belvedere, from where you can look towards Gangi and Mount Etna. Exploring the village, you'll be enchanted by its highest part, an ancient fortification, and by several fine buildings, such as the Church of Santa Maria di Loreto, the Municipal Palace, the two Pottino palaces of the Marquis of Eschifaldo and the Church of the Santissimo Salvatore. Not to be missed, however, is the Salt Museum, in the hamlet of Raffo: here there is still a salt mine, which houses the museum with its evocative salt sculptures.
