Bisacquino (Sicilian: Busacchinu) is a town and comune in the Province of Palermo in Sicily, Italy. It is located 82 kilometres (51 mi) from Agrigento and has approximately 5,215 inhabitants.

The economy is based on agriculture and products are sold in abundance in the main town including cereals, olives, vegetables, almonds, hazel nuts and wine-grapes.

The name Bisacquino derives from an Arabic farm house "Busackuin" meaning "rich in waters". In the 12th century it was owned by local lords until 1778 when it became a property of the archbishop from Monreale. The Sanctuary of the Madonna of the Balzo near Mount Triona was erected in 1678. The main church is the Cathedral Church of Bisacquino which is dedicated to John the Baptist. It was built in 1713.
