The Monastro del Santissimo Salvatore di Corleone is a sanctuary of medieval origins, rebuilt in the 18th century by the will of a knight whose name is known only: "Salvatore".
The monastery, which was home of Carmelite and Benedictine nuns, it organizes its factories around a classical cloister with an octagonal fountain in the center.
The adjoining church has a work of considerable value inside: the fresco by Filippo Randazzo, known as the monocle of Nicosia, depicting the Triumph of St. Benedict in the presence of the SS. Trinity between Benedictine and Carmelite Saints and an Angelic choir, dating back to 1735. A majestic Renaissance polyptych of the Coronation of the Virgin between Saints Michael, John the Baptist, Giovanni Evangelista and Leoluca, known as the "Polyptych of Corleone", now housed in the Regional Gallery of Sicily in Palermo, was also made for this monastery.
