Castelbuono

The Village

Castelbuono owes its origins to the family of Ventimiglia, Inhabitants of the county of Geraci, who, in early 1300, decided to build a castle on the hill where the old Byzantine house "Ypsigro" lies. A few kilometers from the sea, Castelbuono developed at the foot of the Madonie in a pleasant valley inhabited already in the Neolithic and full of reminders of the previous Greek, Roman, Arab and Byzantine settlers. In 1316 Francis I of Ventimiglia, recorded that Geraci and relatives of Frederick II, were to build a castle. This encouraged the growth of the settlement which only 150 years later came to be considered the center of the most vibrant heritage of Ventimiglia.
