Valledolmo is a medieval village rich in cultural attractions.
The charming village of Valledolmo is located in a marvellous valley close to Mount Campanaro and Mount Cammarata. Valledolmo was once called Valle dell’Ulmo (Elm Valley) due to a massive Elm tree found in the main square of the village. Giuseppe Cutelli founded the village in 1650 after buying the land from the famous Sclafani family. Later the baron Antonio Cicala constructed some of the most important buildings of Valedolmo such as the Mother Church, a mill and the majestic chapel bell which is considered the symbol of this tiny village.
The main cultural attractions of Valledolmo are:
The Church of Anime Sante, built in 1654 by baron Antonio Cicala; the Mother Church, dedicated to the Immacolata Concezione; the Church of Maria SS. della Purità; the Baglio Castellana, an ancient feudal building erected by the count Cutelli characterized by a stunning cloister.
