The Church of San Francesco

In 1581, the feud was bestowed to Francesco Campo, and afterwards to Prince Fabbrizio Lucchesi. In 1812, Campofranco acquired its independence, and was annexed to the district of Caltanissetta.

During the period following the Unity of Italy, the town experienced an incredible growth within the mining field, followed by a strong demographic increase.

The most outstanding and artistically relevant monument is the Chiesa Madre dedicated to San Giovanni Evangelista, built in 1575, shaped as the Latin cross.

Next to the Church, there is the Torre Comunale, built in 1909, and the Town Hall's new building, constructed in 1970.
