A particular Bompensiere

The land of Bompensiere initially belonged to the barons of Mussomeli, and then was bestowed to the Chiaramonte family in the XIV century. Afterwards, as of 1549, it was under the Lanza dynasty, until the feudal rights were abolished.

The suburb of Bompensiere was founded in 1630 by Don Ottavio Lanza, with "licentia populandi" granted by the citizens' concession; the suburb became an independent town in 1817. From 1868 and 1911, however, it was simply a fraction of the nearby town of Montedoro.

The seventeenth century Chiesa Madre has an incredible artistic value; it was dedicated to the SS. Crocifisso, and the facade was recently restructured.
