Petralia Soprana rises on a plateau 1150 meters high and keeps its history in its medieval characteristics.

This video brings to the discovery of the huge cultural patrimony of Petralia Soprana, illustrating the churches, the palaces, the works of art, the nature, the resources, the traditions of this fine town.

The precise and evocative description comes from a long research on ancient and modern books about the city. The voice explains the images of alleys, open spaces, fountains, "portalini" and the "rocca" (a very large rock) where the Arabs built the castle (today it is the church of "Santa Maria di Loreto"), "le pietre del castello ruggeriano" (the ruins of the Ruggerian castle), the public square where the Dome rises.

The story of Petralia Soprana is also written in the surrounding villages, encircled by country and by evocative natural atmosphere, where small churches and luxury villas rise.

The most important festival in Petralia Soprana occurs on June, 29 and it is a famous religious procession.

Promoted by the Municipality of Petralia Soprana in order to value the historical patrimony, this video is the incentive to rediscover the ancient traditions.

The fascination of the Madonie mountains can be easily found in the castles, in the medieval villages arose around them and arranged so to crown the top of the mountains, or placed in the mild valleys.

The same fascination can also be found in the works of art, in the churches and the baronial palaces that embellish the city systems of Muslim derivation, in the archaeological sites, in the suburbane villas as well as in the small rural churches and in the flour mills placed among rich valleys and soft hills.

The territory of the Madonie mountains is an isle in the island, a paradise of earth and sky where each corner guards its perfect history and its nature.

It comes introduced in its multiple fascinating treasures through this video that, for evocative images and thoroughness of the text, is not only proposed as a didactic subsidy for those who wants to better know the beauties of the Madonie but also like a contribution to the respawn of this wonderful piece of Sicily and a stimulus for those young people wishing to spend theit own energies in the earth they born.
