The city - Marsala

Westwards, where Sicily ends, on a promontory exposed to sea and wind, it rises the town the Phoenicians called Lilibeo and that Arabs wanted to renominate Marsa Ali.

Around a centre, small but full of art and history, it opens a vast territory that includes an infinity of loose hamlets, the so-called “contrade”. In the surrounding lands, far from town frenzy, it is produced a wine of ancient and glorious history, with an unique taste and fragrance: the Marsala.

The promenade, very beautiful for so many palms succeeding on both sides, will take you directly to the bathing area, where free beaches and bathing establishments alternate. There, in hot summer days, when the sun does not fail to make strongly feel everybody its presence, a limpid and inviting sea will open to your eyes.

Instead, on the opposite side, towards Trapani, a still more particular landscape awaits you: the “Stagnone” lagoon with Mothia and the other little islands that form part of the Natural Reserve and, a little further on, the Salinas with the tanks for the salt picking and the windmills.
