Mazara del Vallo: Location and surroundings of this property
"A unique and magnificent city, where nothing is missing”. With these words the Arab geographer al-Idrisi describes the city in the “Book of Roger”.
Mazara del Vallo is a city with a unique atmosphere: Italy's major fishing port and for millennia melting pot of different cultures.
Of all the unknown, unheralded wonders of Sicily this salty fishing port must be near the top of the list. Its ancient centre and its charming seaside promenade lined with trees is a delight to walk in, with a collection of Baroque monuments at least as good as Noto.
The ancient city rises on the Canale di Sicilia, at the extreme southwestern tip of Sicily, at the left estuary of the Mazaro river, probably in the same place where the Phoenicians founded the commercial colony Mazar, "The Rock".
Piazza della Repubblica, the main square, has a magnificent cathedral, flanked by the Bishop's Palace and seminary and in the adjacent Piazza Mokarta are the remains of the Norman castle. However all the ancient centre is crammed with beautiful baroque churches and civic buildings. Don't miss the extraordinarily beautiful bronze statue of a dancing satyr", a masterpiece of Greek art. Discovered by a local fisherman, the 'Dancing Satyr' is now housed in a special museum.
Mazara gets little attention in most books, possibly because its historic centre was decayed and neglected for so long. Mazara's on its way back now.
The town is one of the most important Sicilian place for the height fishing and its contribution to the national production in this field is of 20%. Its lands produce various products such as vegetables, citrus fruits, olives, table and wine grapes.
In this region the food is heaven & the fish is wonderful. There is a wide range of shops and good restaurants, where you can savour the freshest seafood and fish, specially the excellent red lobster of Mazara or the traditional Cous Cous dressed with fishing soup.
The ancient Greek city of Selinunte, overlooking the sea, is less than a 40-minute drive away. After exploring the ruins you can go down to the nearby beach of Marinella, cool off in the sea and feast on delicious local fish at one of the little seaside 'trattorie'. Half an hour in the other direction is the mysterious temple of Segesta, high up on a hill overlooking the valley. Nearby is the ancient Greek theatre. In 20 minutes you can reach Marsala famous for wine, and don't miss the Punic Ship on display at the museum. Just beyond Marsala is the lagoon with its saltpans and windmills. Visit the fascinating island of Mozia, once a Phoenician colony, and see the fascinating Punic remains and the beautiful Greek statue of a young boy. The medieval hilltop town of Erice with its Norman castle, site of an ancient temple of Venus, is an hour's drive from Mazara. From Trapani or Marsala you can reach the lovely Egades islands. Palermo and the Greek city of Agrigento are easy day trips.
From the Fishing Port, Marina & Lungomare Santo Vito. The Lungomare is great for a nice long walk to the marina.

Trapani Province Fast Facts
The borders of Africa begins just west of Palermo, in western Sicily, where the sunlight is purer and the air whipped clean by the wind, where the sky is tinged with strong colours especially at sunset when it is strikingly red, then deep blue then gold; where the wind that brings hot effluvia from Africa and fine sand from the desert, that shapes as its pleasure, the soft dunes and the humble elevations of blue clay and gold sandstone; where challenging winds and drought, dominate undisputedly, the great bushes of euphorbia, the tufts of 'serracchio', the oleasters, the palms, the thorny ginestra and the lentisk; where isolated and mighty, these rises up, rugged calcareous masses that now fall perpendicularly to the sea, now on the stony plateau, then on the gently undulating land; where the sea laps expanses of golden sand and rages against the low cliffs that still reecho the sounds of mythical battles.
Western Sicily is the most "african" strip of the Island and at the same time, the most "sicilian" of all the areas of Sicily. If eastern Sicily remained predominantly Greek until the late Middle Ages, western Sicily was predominantly North African and Arab. The spaghetti gives way to cous cous and nearly every town or village can trace it name back to the Arabic. Tunis after all is only 5 hours by hydrofoil from Trapani. Within a couple of hours drive, one finds wilderness areas, magnificent mountains, renown beaches, historic wine estates and charming villages. Here, too, are Sicily's cleanest sea and least spoil coasts, the Zingaro Nature Reserve, the Aegadi Islands and Pantelleria. Here are the renown and golden beaches of San Vito Lo Capo and Belice, the white beaches of Mazara del Vallo and Marsala, the sublime architecture of Segesta and Selinunte, the magic lagoon of Stagnone, the blood-red rocks of Scurati.The archeological sites of Selinunte and Segesta are two of the best sites for ancient history; the Selinunte Archaeological Park is the largest in Europe. The tourism sector is perceived as the most important growth force in the Trapani province.
Visitors to the Trapani province can land at Birgi Airport (Trapani) or Falcone and Borsellino Airport (Palermo). By sea can disembark at the Port of Trapani or Palermo.
It is the historic stomping ground of the Phoenicians and Carthaginians, who made Motya and Lilybaeum great sea ports, and the mysterious Elymians, who made Venus their greatest god at Erice and constructed the most enchanting of ancient temples in Sicily at Segesta.
More than 433 000 people live in the the province of Trapani on 2 461 km² of land shared in 24 towns.
Agriculture and Marine Fishery
The Western Sicily is rich in agriculture and fisheries. Other important towns in the province include Mazara del Vallo, an important harbour for fishing industry; Marsala in the heart of the winelands; Castelvetrano, renowned for "nocellara" olive's oils and vegetable produce. Half of all Sicilian Wine comes from the sun-drenched hills in this most western province, sweet Marsala and the honey-coloured ambrosian from the fascinating island of Pantelleria. The sheltered valleys between the mountains provide ideal conditions for a harvest of top-grade fruits, table grapes, olives and oranges. In the eastern part of the Western Sicily, a great variety of vegetables is cultivated.
