Area: Cefalù and Madonie
Once there was only one Petralia: ancient Petra, founded by Sicani and called "Batarliah" by the Arabs. It was the Normans who built a castle around which the village of "sotto" developed, thus separating the community of Petralia into two sister cities: Sottana and Soprana. Petralia Sottana reached the peak of its splendor under the baronies of the Ventimiglia, Moncada, Cardona and Alvarez de Toledo families. Monuments, works of art and an authentic sculptural heritage bear witness to its history.
