Basilica di San Leone 3 - Fine Art Produzioni

According to tradition Pope Leo II, to whom the church was named after in the eleventh century, was very close to Aidone, perhaps even born there. What is certain is that the original building was founded on megalithic stones from the area of Citttadella-Morgantina, a feature that protected the building from complete ruin in the 1693 earthquake. The color of the facade and brick, provide an aesthetic element absolutely consistent with the village and the square on which it sits. From the side streets you can catch glimpses of rural landscapes.
