Half a day Tour
Departure from Cefalu
Certainly the name Corleone makes you think in “Don Vito Corleone”, the main character of “The Godfather” movie. From here there is an almost obvious link to the mafia that, indeed, was present in this location. In the beginning of the 1960s, the town became infamous for its Mafia, being the town where some well-known criminals, that ruled the “Cupola” (the hidden Mafia’s Council), had their headquarters: the “Corleonesi’s Clan” ruled by Totò Riina. On the excursion we will travel through the hilly landscape of Sicily for 1 ½ hours before arriving at the town of Corleone, where our local guide meets us and takes us on a stroll in the quaint town streets and in the square where the “Picciotti” were recruited. We will pass by the Mother Church dedicated to St. Martin and on the way to the “Laboratorio della Legalità” (lit. Legality’s Lab) where there is a photographic exhibition of judges Falcone and Borsellino.
