Provincia: EN - Area: Central Sicily

Leonforte is a charming village immersed in the countryside founded by Count Nicolò Placido Branciforti in 1610. The territory of Leonforte, however, preserves a very ancient history: in this place the ancient settlement of the Sicilians, one of the first peoples of Sicily, was built; the Byzantines built there the castle of Tavi, today reduced to a few ruins; With the subsequent Norman conquest the town passed into the hands of various nobles, until during the Spanish domination it passed to Branciforti.
The area surrounding Leonforte is rich in water, as evidenced by the monumental fountains that enrich the village, and has always been involved in intense agricultural activity as evidenced by the many rural buildings and mills that dot the surrounding area.
