Province of Palermo

Pollina is part of the wonderful Madione Park which is preserved by the International Slow Food Organisation. 

Pollina includes the tiny village of Finale. The violent 1993 earthquake completely destroyed this charming village, and so the villagers moved to Finale where they rebuilt the main downtown centre of the village. Thanks to its location in the Madonie Park and its extended Ash forests, this tiny village is well known for the production of the Manna, the sap extracted from the Ash trees, which is then preserved by the International Slow Food Organisation. The most important monuments are:
The Church of SS. Giovanni and Paolo includes impressive works of art dating back to the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries; The Tower of Maurolico built in the 16th century, it was used as astronomical observatory by the Sicilian astronomer Francesco Maurolico; The Theatre of Pietra Rosa built in 1979 by the Sicilian architect A. Foscari; The Finale Tower was a Spanish watchtower built in 1597. Here it is possible to enjoy a beautiful view of Cefalù, Capo d’Orlando and Aeolian Island.
