VEDUTA DEL VECCHIO CENTRO STORICO

 
Ruins of Poggioreale
For centuries the town developed as a agricultural centre, until the night between the 14th and 15th of January 1968 when a violent earthquake hit the Belice valley: the old inhabited centre of Poggioreale, was 80% damaged and many houses collapsed under the strong tremors of the earthquake. The old town was abandoned and the new town was transferred further downstream on the hill of the Baglio della Mandria di Mezzo where the population has maintained its uses, customs and traditions.
