The salt marshes that abound on the coast between Trapani and Marsala have been famous since ancient times.

Today production has declined but exploring the salt marshes is still a fascinating experience. The oldest and most beautiful and is in Stagnone Nature Reserve, a site where the low water of a pond next to the sea appears to be enclosed in large white pools. The area is dotted with windmills and is good for photos.

The boat also sails over the remains of Mózia, a sunken Phoenician city (1 meter deep). If the Levant blows and the waters are calm you can clearly see it.
Nature Reserves in Trapani
Riserva Naturale Saline Di Trapani E Paceco
When I visited the northwest of Sicily, I immediately thought of the salt pans of Trapani. A magical place, full of surreal colors. Observing the magenta hues of ponds that accompanied blurred horizon in a sky of bright orange sunset. A place apparently hostile to life with its vast spaces, its silence broken occasionally by beautiful birds flying over our heads. Walking along the ponds and touching the thin layer of salt is a unique experience. Then, the windmills take us back to childhood, the memory of epic tales and fables. White fields of salt mountains, arranged so precisely, almost like a polar landscape, seen from above, the rivers of ice and icebergs. A charming place for the eyes and soul. A place where man merges with nature. Indescribable.

The ancient city of Segesta was built on the top of Mount Barbaro, and shaped like a saddle.
