Petralia Soprana

Provincia: PA - Area: Cefalù and Madonie

Petralia Soprana is a splendid mountain village, the highest in the Madonie. It is defined as an "author's mountain" for its splendid panoramas and belvedere that range from Etna to the sea.
Once upon a time there was only one Petralia: ancient Petra, founded by the Sicans and called "Batarliah" by the Arabs . At the time of the Normans the village of "sotto" developed, thus separating the community of Petralia into two sister cities. It was then that Petralia Soprana was called Petra Helia.
Petralia Soprana is characterized by paved streets embellished with portals, gates and balconies, palaces and churches where the skill of artists, sculptors, blacksmiths and carpenters shines through.
