Province of Palermo

Giuliana offers an incredible landscape characterised by the Nature Rerserve of monte Genuardo and Santa Maria del Bosco.

Giuliana was founded in 1185 by King Guglielmo II il Buono. Due to the frequent barbarian invasions, the villagers moved up to the hill rebuilding the feudal town. The most important monuments of the village are: the Santuario of Maria SS. dell’Udienza, built in the 16th century includes a wonderful alabaster statue of the Madonna;the Matrice is the recent reconstruction of the ancient Cathedral built in the 14th century. The Church of the Collegio built in 1817; the Castle of Federico II is a charming well preserved Aragonese building; the Convent of SS Trinità.

Close to the village you can visit the wonderful  Nature Rerserve of monte Genuardo and Santa Maria del Bosco.
