Carefullied lay down in a conca encircled from cliffs that constitute an original geologic unicum and that the time has modeled in shape of fortifications and towers, Corleone never ends to astonish with its charming landscape dominated from the "Twin Rocks ". The natural scene, made even more evocative by deep gorges and resting falls, counteracts with the city where the bundled houses, the warp of court-yards, alleys and narrow lanes lapping noble churches, convents, palaces and humble houses, and the civic museum center propeller of the local culture, tell the ultramillenarian history of this pleasant country.
Religious life affected the history of Corleone, " city of the one hundred churches ", much more than the civil events.
The statues, the paintings, the precious architectures, traditional " cursa ri Santu Luca (San Luca race) ", are the symbol of the thin wire that always tied here love for art, feeling, faith and legend.
Maze of stones, faces, emotions, Corleone today watches to its splendid one and glorious past in order to construct its future.
