Surrounded by the woods of the Madonie Park, Petralia Sottana still has a medieval structure.

He won the 2018 edition of the national contest "The most beautiful villages in Italy".

It is identified with the Sicilian town of Petra, which in Roman times passed to the Aulus Attilio and Gneo Cornelio consuls, and was one of the main grain-supplying cities of Rome.

In 1062 Batraliah was conquered by the Norman Ruggero d'Altavilla, who made it fortify and gave it the current urban connotation, with the castle, the towers, the ramparts and the churches.

Ruggero assigned it to his nephew Serlone; later it belonged to the counts Ventimiglia of Geraci Siculo, the county of Collesano, the Centelles, the Cardona, the Moncada and the Alvarez of Toledo, until the abolition of feudalism in 1817.

Among the works to be admired stand out the medieval Mother Church with two bell towers, one from the fifteenth century and one from the seventeenth century, and a portico created by the Serpotta; the Church of Santa Maria di Loreto, an ancient fortress transformed into a church and rebuilt in 1750; the Church of the Most Holy Savior, the Church of Santa Maria di Gesù, with remarkable bas-reliefs in the façade; the town hall building, Palazzo Pottino, Villa Sgadari.

From 24th to 29th June, the town celebrates the patrons S.

Pietro and S.

Paolo, and on the day of August there is a historical re-enactment that proposes a wedding in eighteenth-century clothes.
