Despite being a city of simple uses and customs, it contains a set of cultures that are also very different from each other, inherent in the Marsala tradition.
Its historic center offers churches, squares, monuments, museums and archaeological excavations that allow us to see the same city in the distant years.
Starting from the beautiful Porta Nuova, we immerse ourselves in the "Cassaro", with Piazza della Repubblica which houses the Norman Cathedral, built in 1176. Continuing along via Garibaldi it is possible to reach the current Piazza Mercato del Pesce which houses the fish market and which at sunset turns into one of the most popular venues for the nightlife. Finally, the remains of ancient ships and many other historical finds are kept in the Baglio Anselmi Archaeological Museum.
The island of Mothia (or Mozia) is instead an ancient Phoenician / Punic colony located on the island of Pantaleo in the Stagnone di Marsala Nature Reserve and belongs to the Whitaker Foundation, archaeologist and heir of an English family who had moved to Sicily and producers of Marsala.
Inside you will find many attractions able to imagine the merchant life in other times.
