Trapani

Trapani is the province in the west of Sicily. The capital of this region is Trapani.

The name Trapani originates from a Greek word “Drepanon”, which means “sickle”. The cape, where Trapani was founded looks like the sickle or the half-moon. There are a lot of different archaeological relics in Trapani’s environs. Phoenicians founded their first settlement here at the dawn of their civilization (10 B.C.). Then ancient Greeks came. They built Sellinunt, the oldest town of Sicily (7 B.C.). Hannibal’s forces destroyed it and now Sellinunt is picturesque ruins. The Temple is another well-known memorial in Trapani. It is situated in Segesta, which used to be a Greek colony.

The capital of Trapani is a kaleidoscope of mixed Arabian, Greek, Norman, Spaniard and Roman traditions. The tourists appreciate the St.Virgo Mary Church. It is a unique monument of the Middle Ages. The Church embodies the consummate skill of the Arabian architects, the Gothic style and the Renaissance epoch. There is Madonna statue at the sanctuary of the Church.
