Step 1

Make the most of your stay at Viola bed and breakfast by visiting the nearby attractions that our town offers. For those who love long walks, Mussomeli is a city of extraordinary beauty that can be enjoyed and explored for days.

A short walk for our B&B is the main square of Mussomeli, Piazza Umberto I, where you can see the monument dedicated to those fallen “paesani” (towns people) in the war. Also piazza Umberto has great significance it is where the towns people also commemorate crucifixion of Christ every good Friday. The square is also home to the church “San Francesco” which dates back to around 1500 which houses a beautiful “Immacolata” by Francesco Biancardi (XIX century), and painting of St. Francesco di Paola of the seventeenth century and another from the eighteenth century depicting St. Liborius.

Continuing further into the “Centro Storico” (old town of Mussomeli) you can admire the beautiful church of S. Ludovico ( Chiesa Madre) built in the second half of the fourteenth century by Manfredi III. Next to the Chiesa Madre stands the church of SS. Sacramento where “la Bolla” of Pope Julius III issued in 1554, is kept. Do not miss the splendid baroque stucco work of Giacomo Serpotta that can be found within the Church of St. Margherita (also located in the old town).

Continuing our journey, down “Via Minneci”, we can see the clock tower that was built around 1570 by Don Cesare Lanza. From piazza Roma you great a view of the Clock where we will find the seventeenth century Palazzo Trabia, home for more than three hundred years of the lords of the area.

Continuing towards the most southern part of the town you will find the Church of St. Antonio build around 1400 and the Church of San Domenico (Sanctuary of Madonna dei Miracoli) which is one of the most beautiful and oldest in Mussomeli.

The first building dates back to 1530, the year of the miracle of the paralytic. According to tradition, the place where the miracle took place, a painting of the Madonna and baby Jesus was found on stone and now worshiped in the crypt of the Shrine. To remember “Madonna dei Miracoli” of the nineteenth century, by Biancardi, placed above the altar, Patroness of Mussomeli.
