San Cipirello (Palermo Province) is 31 km. from Palermo, alt. 394 m., on the left of the River Jato, area 20.9 sq. km., pop. over 5200, post-code 90040, tel. 091. Agricultural economy.

The modern town began to take shape in the 18th century in an area that had been inhabited since ancient times, when it became a fief of the Beccadelli Bologna family. It spread in the 19th century, when it absorbed the inhabitants of the neighboring San Giuseppe dei Mortilli (after 1864 known as San Giuseppe Jato) which was largely destroyed by a landslide in 1838.

Of interest is the civil museum in via Roma which contains material from excavations of nearby Monte Jato.
