Poggioreale (Sicilian: Poggiuriali) is a small town and comune in the province of Trapani, western Sicily, southern Italy, located in the Belice valley.

It was destroyed by the Belice Valley earthquake in 1968, and eventually rebuilt in a safer place a few kilometers away, causing the entire population to be moved there.

Economy is mostly based on agriculture and fruit cultivation.
