Then to the near town of Corleone, famous all over the world (or perhaps infamous) for its Mafia, being the town in which some well-known clans had their headquarters (the Clan dei Corleonesi). The name of the town was used as the adopted surname of the title character in Francis Ford Coppola’s movie, The Godfather. The town is very nice and typical Sicilian style.
Then we will drive through the Platani River Valley admiring rural landscapes surrounded by the Sikan Mounts and crossing several little Villages: Santo Stefano Quisquina, Bivona, Alessandria della Rocca, Cianciana, Raffadali… the main economy of all these towns is based on agricultural products.
