San Fratello Door

In 1687, the name was changed into Piedimonte Etneo by its founder Ferdinando Gravina, because the town was situated at the foot of the homonymous volcano. The town was under the dominion of this noble family until the abolition of the feudal rights.

The most interesting monuments are the Chiesa Madre erected in the XVIII century, that preserves a polychrome wooden statue dated 1600, the Chiesa dell'Immacolata rich of wooden altars of 1700, and the Mariano Sanctuary, preserving a splendid Byzantine manufactured Madonna.
