It is the largest Archaeological area in Europe. Where myth, legend, history, culture meets. A coffer of
treasures far away millenia yet still alive, right here. 270 hectares that tell about one of the most
flourishing classical civilizations of the Mediterranean area. A rich story that claim still to be discovered,
sought after by tourists as well as researchers and academics from all over the world.
7 Temples, some in good condition, built according to a strict Doric order, the oldest Greek architectural
style. There are still sanctuaries, necropolis, the caves of Cusa and all the places of interest present
within the Archaeological Park.
Located in front of the Egadi Islands, Marsala is famous all over the world for its wine.
This city has witnessed the departure of Garibaldi and his thousand companions conquering Italy
and it has known several dominations: Greek, Spanish, Normans, Swabians, Angevins and
The urban architecture reflects these manifold civilizations mixing together Baroque elements with
the Arabian style and Spanish decorations.
Founded initially by the Phoenicians who called the city Lilybaeum, that is to say the city in front of
Libia, the current name of Marsala (Marsa-Alì = port of Alì) was chosen by the Arabs.
The city of Marsala keeps some fascinating pearls: an amazing seafront characterized by hundreds
of aligned palm trees, the salt-works, their typical windmills and the famous stagnone (big pond)
that include the island of Mothia.
Marsala Salt Pans
The salt pans of Marsala represent the famous white and blue landscape. This is the route of
the salt, where small and large companies carry out the Millenary activity of the "cultivation"
of salt. The salt pans, still active, produce an exceptional salt, thanks to a system of dams that
create small lagoons, which are then dried by the sun. Young and old People have worked side
by side for centuries in this magical place. At sunset, the sun turns the water red, that
captivates your heart that will leave a unique taste of Sicily.
