The most important chapel is of course the one dedicated to the Madonna the proper sanctuary , realised between the 15th and 16th century. Leaving the sanctuary, you can visit the Museo Pepoli in the former convent of the Carmelitan Fathers, where you can see 16th and 17th century sculptures, paintings realised between the 13th and 18th century, archaeological findings, a coin collection and one of decorative arts.
The highlight of the museum is the collection of Trapani corals and it includes objects of great value 17th to 18th century testimony of the ability of the local craftsmen. We go still along via Fardella till we reach piazza Vittorio Emanuele, a wide square with trees and, in the background, Villa Margherita , realised in with ficus trees, palm trees, jasmine and other Mediterranean plants. This was built in on the remains of a pre-existing building realised in the 6th century and dedicated to Santa Sofia. The outside is rather plain while the inside is richly decorated in Baroque style with coloured marble.
At the end of the road there is piazza Vittorio Veneto, a bit further on, the remains of the Castello di Terra , perhaps of Punic origin, surely the oldest stronghold of the town. The foundations date back to but the present aspect is that of the remake — even though the dome, the bell tower, the choir and the side chapels are of a later period 18th century. The promontory gets more and more narrow.
On the right, the old houses lean against the ramparts that end with the Ligny Tower , built by the prince of the same name in at present is hosts the Museum of Prehistory with objects found in the surrounding territory and sea. From there you get a beautiful view of the sea, the Egadi islands, the coast of Bonagia and Pizzolungo. On the other side, in the harbour, lazy fishing-boats rock gently, protected by the bulk of the Lazzaretto and guarded by the Colombaia tower or Castello di Mare , a fortress realised already at the time of Amilcare that acted also as lighthouse.
Sicily, maybe the whole Italy are beginning.
And from here the jouney starts towards east, towards the rest of the world accompanied by the growing hills and mountains. Near the village there is the monument to the Redshirts that fell in that battle. From the hill a vast panorama can be admired. In its territory, moreover, there is the Segesta archaeological area , with a temple from the 5th century BC and a fascinating theatre, still used today for performances of theatrical works, poetry and music during the summer.
Castellammare del Golfo This maritime village takes its name from the medieval castle that stands at its centre, surrounded by low white cottages. Originally the port and emporium of nearby Segesta, today it is above all a bathing resort, thanks to the proximity of splendid beaches like Guidaloca , Cala Bianca and Scopello , the latter having magnificent rock stacks that emerge from a deep blue sea; here there is also the Zingaro nature reserve. Not far away there are the Segesta thermal baths , which exploit the therapeutic qualities of sulphurous waters.
Castelvetrano At the centre of an area with a particular vocation for olive growing and viticulture, it has a pleasant historical area articulated among two piazzas, Piazza Garibaldi and Piazza Umberto I. A must is the cathedral church. You also absolutely must try the tasty black bread , one of the most important Sicilian expressions of Slow Food.
In the territory you can visit the archaeological area of Selinunte , a Greek colony founded in the 7th century by settlers from Megara Hyblea. Among the ruins, vestiges of grandiose temples emerge. Erice Perched on top of the Monte Erice, it is an ancient little town with a picturesque medieval look. The little cobbled streets, along which there are houses in stone, are among its main attractions. Of the temple of Venus of Erice , one of the most revered in antiquity, unfortunately there only remain some ruins, near the medieval castle.

The moment of its greatest flourishing was under the Arabs. Traces of this period still remain in the town.
