MUSSOMELI

 

Nestled atop a hill, in an extremely scenic location, the city of Mussomeli is characterized by narrow streets and houses jostled with one another. Behind the city, on a rock, rises the Castello Manfredonico.

At the heart of the town stand the Mother Church, refurbished in the 17th century, and, few distant, the 1500s Santuario della Madonna dei Miracoli made of white calcareous stone. Its portal is embellished by two fine twisted columns.
