Borgetto is a small village located a short distance from Palermo.
A popular legend tells of its origins, history places its presence already in the late thirteenth century, a time when Borgetto was a fiefdom under the power of Simone d'Escolo . But the real story of Borgetto begins in 1337 when Margherita d'Escolo became the new lady of the fiefdom: she decided to donate the fiefdom to the Monastery of San Martino delle Scale, on condition that the abbot built a Monastery in the town to be consecrated in Santa Maria delle Ciambre.
