San Cipirello

Area: Palermo surroundings

San Cipirello is a small village located at the foot of Mount Jato, in the Palermo hinterland.
Although the area where San Cipirello stands has been inhabited since ancient times, as evidenced by the remains found on Mount Jato, its birth is fairly recent and is linked to that of the nearby village of San Giuseppe Jato. Following heavy rains, on 11 March 1838, a landslide destroyed 2/3 of the town of San Giuseppe Jato, without however causing any casualties. Many families moved south to the Sancipirrello district, which later became San Cipirello.
The urban design was carried out following the project of a small ideal city with a square plan with an orderly network of streets and squares dominated by the main church and 4 squares with fountains and four cantos embellished with 4 fountains. Sancipirello still shows the trace of this design today.
