Collesano is a charming village immersed in the Madonie park. Located along the slope of a wide valley, bordered by two streams, and placed at the foot of the Poggio Grotta del Signore relief, it is surrounded by majestic reliefs.
The ancient remains of the castle tell its story: the first urban settlement it developed on Monte D'Oro in the Islamic age in the X century; after the Norman conquest Collesano became the center of a vast feud, finally Roger II, king of Sicily, ordered the destruction of the fortified center, which was then rebuilt on the current site.
The village developed following the orography of the territory marked by the presence of two streams and the influence of religious power which determined the main road axes with the location of churches and monastic orders.
Its name is inextricably linked to the Targa Florio car race, of which it was one of the main steps. Its museum preserves its memory.
It boasts a centuries-old tradition in woodworking and in the creation of inlays.
