The salt pans in Trapani

Trapani and the salt pans

Trapani is a nice little town on the westernmost tip of Sicily. Thanks to its ancient history there are plenty of art and culture treasures to discover.

Its old centre has been thoroughly restored and is mainly visitable on foot. A short tour of Trapani comprises the Annunziata Sanctuary, which is the most important monument of Trapani, built in the 14th century and still boasting its original Gothic facade; and the adjoining Carmelite convent, now transformed in the interesting Pepoli museum, with collections reconstructing the history of this area and several works of art, such as the amazing collection of silver and coral objects.

The tour continues to the salt pans bordering Trapani to the South. The whole area is a WWF oasis, as it hosts thousands of migrating birds in spring and autumn. In the summer, salt is still produced according to age old traditions. To learn about this process, we stop for a guided visit at the Salt Museum inside an old windmill. After that, enjoy a walk among the basins, and don’t miss to take pictures of this enchanting and unique place.
