Altavilla Milicia is a comune (municipality) in the Metropolitan City of Palermo in the Italian region Sicily, located about 20 kilometres (12 mi) southeast of Palermo.

The Commune is named after the Hauteville family, Norman Settlers who conquered Sicily in the 11th century and later became the ruling dynasty of the island.[4][5] The name Altavilla is an Italian translation of the French Hauteville. The feudal Barony of Altavilla later passed into the hands of the Adragna family.

Altavilla Milicia borders the municipalities of Casteldaccia and Trabia.
