A walk in the center of Trapani
Trapani, the city between the two seas, lying in a flat area on the slopes of Mount Erice, encapsulates its charm in a well-crafted mix of different landscapes, cultures and populations that have lived there over the centuries, including Phoenicians, Romans, Arabs, Normans, Angevins, Aragonese and Bourbons.
The historic center is a treasure chest of smells, stories, noises and sensations. From the narrow streets of the old Jewish quarter of Giudecca to the striking Ligny Tower, home to a small civic museum, to the Colombaia also known as the “Sea Castle,” to the fashionable Via Garibaldi with its 18th-century palaces.
All the way to the central Corso Vittorio Emanuele, the Senatorial Palace and Clock Tower, and not far away the imposing Cathedral, dedicated to St. Lawrence, built in the 17th century. One cannot pass up a romantic sunset stroll along the Mura di Tramontana, which runs along the northern shoreline from Fish Market Square to the Conca Bastion.
