Castellammare del Golfo

This town, which rises on the gulf of the same name, finds its identity in the sea. Founded as a marine trading centre for the traders of the nearby Segesta, watch towers and defensive bulwarks of the castle are reflected in its sea. And it is the sea where life is led, and which animates the summer evenings. In the surrounding area, archaic landscapes are still conserved, like the village of Scopello, set on a rock which overlooks the stacks and an old tonnara (tuna warehouse). Part of the Riserva Naturale Orientata dello Zingaro – Oriented Nature Reserve of the Zingaro falls into the territory of Castellammare where, next to the uncontaminated beaches considerable endemic manifestations of flora and fauna are to be found. For potholing lovers, the caves of Mount Inici with extremely deep “orridi” (ravines), underwater lakes and extremely suggestive views are not to be missed.
