Trapani

The ancient city of Trapani

Trapani has been in existence from time immemorial. The Phonecians in particular were responsible for the development of this town around the 9th century B.C. when Trapani was as an important seaport. Trapani suffered bitterly during the Second World War, when heavy air raids almost completely devastated the area. After rebuilding in the following decades, Trapani once more managed to rehabilitate itself economically. Trapani has become an important tourist destination, especially since the America’s Cup took place here in 2005.

Trapani Tourism

There are several tourist attractions that visitors to Trapani should by no means miss out on: the Basilica-Santuario di Maria Santissima Annuinziata is a church that was built in the 14th century and rebuilt after its destruction in the 18th century, where holiday-makers can see the “Madonna di Trapani”, a marble statue that is believed to have been made by Nino Pisano. Museum lovers are well taken care of in the Museo Regionale Agostino Pepoli, where they can view, amongst other things, a 16th century painting of St. Francis by Tizian.

If you’re just looking for a quiet way to spend an afternoon, you might consider a wander into the Arabic Old Town, where narrow, winding alleyways await guests. Trend setters will be able to find little streets where exclusive boutiques display their wares.
