Here you can find the famous Greek statue of the “Dancing Satyr of Mazara del Vallo”. Furthermore, Mazara del Vallo is known for its multi-ethnicity.

Its sandy coast stretches for 10 km. Near Menfi, you can reach Portopalo beach, here there are many restaurants where you can taste typical local dishes overlooking the sea.
Segesta was founded by the Elymian civilisation, and to this day is still a mysterious entity in our land. Known for its rich archaeological park, full of history and exuberant Mediterranean vegetation. The lively and solid presence of imposing temples, their decorated columns, monumental gates, surrounding walls, the Sanctuary of Contrada Mango, the magnificent view of the two acropolis and the necropolis outside the walls, show us how many wonderful evolutions Sicily has experienced and how easy it is to access them by walking around it step by step. Visiting this location will be a real journey into the most remote history of our beloved land.

Cretto di Burri
Il Cretto di Burri is one of the largest and most extraordinary works of land art in Europe, created by Alberto Burri in Sicily, in the province of Trapani, located on Gibellina Vecchia. The latter, razed to the ground after the severe Belice earthquake in 1968, was commemorated by creating this majestic and memorable work of art that is out of the ordinary in its appearance and functionality. The work faithfully replicates the routes of the original plan of the town, so that visitors can walk step by step through the memories of a place now historically lost.
Poggioreale was founded around 1600 at the foot of Mount Castellaccio in the province of Trapani. This town was razed to the ground by a powerful and devastating earthquake in 1968 and all the inhabitants were forced to abandon their homes. In the 1970s, a new settlement was built further down the valley, but the real centre of attraction is the ancient centre of habitation now called the ”ghost town”, this location is much sought after by several filmmakers for its mysterious appearance.
Valle dei Templi
The ever-flourishing Valley of the Temples in Agrigento. One of the largest and best-preserved archaeological sites of classical Greek civilisation in the world, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The presence of these indivisible Doric temples dedicated to the Hellenic gods, and the Pietro Griffo Regional Archaeological Museum housing artefacts dating back to prehistoric times, offer inestimable value to this geographical area of Sicily, an area that has been home to numerous literary works such as “Il Gattopardo”. Its close proximity to rivers, unspoilt islands, endless beaches and scenic mountains makes this location a historical nature trail that allows one to experience the authentic essence of Sicily past and present.
Scala dei Turchi
The Scala dei Turchi, located in the province of Agrigento, is known for the beauty of its white marl walls, smoothed by the waves and wind over millions of years, giving them a smooth, undulating shape. It is a popular destination for tourists from all over the world, as well as for several filmmakers and photographers, for the scenic impact of its white and sometimes surreal appearance. It takes this name because it was the ‘stairway’ or rather the landing place of Saracen pirates, vulgarly called ‘Turks’.
