Salt is a precious food and in ancient times it was even used as a bargaining chip.
Our salt pans extend for about a thousand hectares on the Trapani coast, enjoying an excellent position that has allowed the ancient activity of salt extraction and processing since the Phoenician era.
Since 1995 it has become a natural reserve protected by the WWF also for the presence of pink flamingos. On the seabed of the salt flats an alga grows present in a few other points which allows the flamingo to become that famous pink color and thanks to our climate it is also perfect for their fertilization and growth. An Italian pearl.
During the excursion you will also be able to visit Trapani, admiring the magnificent historic center and its monuments such as the Palazzo Senatorio, Trapani Cathedral of San Lorenzo, Church of the Souls of Purgatory. One of the most majestic places is Piazza Vittorio Emanuele with a large statue of the King in the center. But one of the greatest peculiarities of Trapani is the presence still today of the protective walls of the city.
Trapani and its salt pans will leave you speechless!
