What to see in Trapani
Being not particularly large, Trapani is really a small gem to explore and get to know, and it is not only its sea or the Egadi islands that make it an international tourist
destination. Trapani has the gift of simplicity and beauty that give an authentic glimpse of pure Sicilianness.
City of light, wind and sea
What will immediately strike you, as soon as in Trapani, will be its promenade, an accessible port to everyone, welcoming, tidy and teeming with tourists ready
to leave for the island destinations of Levanzo, Favignana and Marettimo. The promenade along the harbour offers a panorama between the sky and the sea where
light and immense spaces will dazzle you with the power of their splendour.
Before entering the old town, stop at the Pepoli Regional Museum, located in the ancient convent of the Carmelites and today dedicated to the exhibition of
important art collections including a vast collection of precious artefacts and coral jewels, the real red gold of Trapani, and the Treasure of Our Lady of
Trapani. The building itself is a masterpiece of Renaissance architecture with a magnificently decorated staircase and a double loggia cloister.
Always before entering the city's heart you take a trip to the Alighieri seafront. This is where you will meet Piazza Mercato del Pesce, a circular arcade
space that hosts the historic fisherman's market and their typical street voice weekly.
The square, enriched by the fountain of Aphrodite and an ancient paved floor, hosts summer theatrical events and venues of great attraction.
The old town
From here, through Via Torrearsa you enter the old town: you will immediately meet Palazzo Senatorio, better known as Palazzo Cavarretta,
today the seat of the Municipality and symbol of the city. The historic building features a magnificent Baroque façade adorned with statues of the Madonna and Saints and
the Clock Tower.
Just a few steps and you will reach the city's cathedral, dedicated to San Lorenzo. The church, a seventeenth-century building that has
undergone successive modifications, houses an extraordinary Van Dyck Crucifixion.
Rich in noble palaces and ancient churches, we cannot fail to mention the Church of Purgatory in Trapani, more than a place of worship and a real institution
for all Trapanians. The church, which deserves a visit just for its imposing and magnificent Baroque façade, houses 20 wooden statues that once a year are
carried in procession during the function of the "Mysteries" of Trapani on Good Friday before Easter. It is one of the oldest and most famous religious
traditions of the city that manages to fill each alley with thousands of people and notoriety that attracts tourists and journalists from all over the world.
Now let yourself be taken by the central axis of the ancient city, via Vittorio Emanuele, where local craft shops, restaurants and bars liven up the city
lounge from aperitif until late at night. It is worth wandering through the many alleys until you reach via delle Arti. Here you will have the privilege of entering one of
the oldest bars, Colicchia, which since 1885 has produced inimitable delights and a jasmine granita that will literally make you lose your mind! And now go
ahead, walk to the extreme foothills of the city taking via Torre di Ligny and just before diving into the sea you will find the Museum of the Tower,
practically lapped by waves. The Museum, inside a seventeenth-century watchtower, houses prehistoric finds and marine archaeology frequently found in the busy waters of
the Tyrrhenian Sea.
The salt pans of Trapani
It is time to move away just a few kilometres and reach the wonderful salt pans of Trapani, a spectacle of rare poetry where nature still offers an extraordinary spectacle
of timeless beauty. The large tanks, which turn pink at sunset, welcome pink cranes and flamingos in the shade of the ancient mills. Here you can visit the Salt
Museum to discover an ancient maritime tradition.
To conclude your tour in Trapani you just have to take a cable car and from the sea climb up to the mountains to the beautiful Erice, a mediaeval village
famous in the world that will take you through its narrow alleys until you reach the balio with its Castle of Venus from where you will
have the emotion to look at one of the most spectacular views ever: countryside, salt pans and Egadi islands in one glance.
