Paceco

RNO of the Salt pans

An agricultural centre known in the past for a native variety of musk melon called “Cartucciaro”, it offers the visitors one of the most attractive naturalistic areas in Europe, protected by the WWF: the Riserva Naturale Orientata delle Saline di Trapani e Paceco – Oriented Nature Reserve of the Salt Pans of Trapani and Paceco, in which there is the Salt Museum. The neighbouring town hamlet of Nubia, which rose around an ancient watch tower, is famous for its salt production, its typical red garlic and its pizzutello tomato. Not far away is the Dattilo district, where it is possible to try the typical ricotta cheese cannoli and see the Invitation to San Giuseppe (Saint Joseph) which takes place on the 19th of March with the offering of a meal to three people representing the Sacred Family, in front of a votive altar decorated with characteristic bread. The interesting library-museum holds a prominent selection of archaeological finds.
