Mamma Barbarina is located in the Western side of Sicily, an area that features many buildings with an arabian style, who reminds us to the Arab rulers of the XI century.
Marsala (mar-allah, the port of Allah), a very nice town, is just 3 kms away and is famous for its Baglio Anselmi museum were you can visit many archeological finds and were is exhibited a Phoenician ship!
In front of Marsala here it is the island of Mozia, gorgeous, with its Phoenician ruins.
You can approach it from the salt work of Marsala.
30 kms North and here it is Trapani, very beautiful and on the top of a rock, the medieval town of Erice.
Trapanai is the best starting point for the Egadi islands, wonderful.
If you are archeological monuments lover, here we have two stunning archeological sites: Segesta and Selinunte both at cc 40 kms away.
One of my favourite places here in Sicily is the Belice valley, a Sicilian magic, were scattered all around you can admire vineyards, ruins of 1968 towns destroyed by an eartquake, and agricultural futuristic village.
Food? Busiate alla Trapanese, Mediterranean fish, Cannoli alla ricotta!
