Campofranco

Province of Caltanissetta

Campofranco was founded in 1537 by Don Giovanni del Campo.

Thanks to its fertile environment the village of Campofranco was soon populated by farmers and artisans who built the current old town centre. This village is well known for the presence of the Gallo D’Oro river and its Nature Reserve.

The most important monuments of the village are:

the Church of San Francesco;

the Mother Church, dedicated to San Giovanni Evangelista, was built in 1575 by Giovanni Dei Campo with a Neoclassical style;

the Church of Santa Maria dell’Itria includes impressive Neoclassical stuccos and decorations;

Close to the village it is possible to visit the Mount Conca Nature Reserve which was established in 1995 to protect the Karst territory of the area and its prominent vegetation.
