The salt pans are an exceptional site of natural beauty and landscape. Present since the Norman era, over time their economic importance rose to its apex during Spanish rule, when Trapani was considered the most important European port for the salt trade. Today, the salt has become a nature reserve managed by WWF Italy that is working to upgrade and promote the regrowth and the restructuring of some facilities that are in disarray. In the nearly one thousand acre reserve, the extraction of salt is still practised according to ancient methods and you can see the famous windmills used for pumping water between basins. The strategic position, on the border between Africa and Europe, means that many migratory birds make their stop. It is an unspoilt, charming place where you will be enchanted by a sunset over the sea and a heron flying above.
