Alcamo

Known as City of wine and of art, it was the birth-place of the poet Ciullo, and is one of the most famous urban centres of the province. Walking through the historic centre one can admire the Conti di Modica castle, the noble historic buildings, the churches, rich in works of art (sculptures by Gagini, stuccoes by Serpotta, paintings by Borremans). From Mount Bonifato, from the Alcamo Wood Reserve and from the ruins of Ventimiglia castle, it is possible to admire enchanting views, the splendid scenery of the Gulf of Castellammare and the golden beaches of Alcamo Marina. The cultivation of the “purceddu” winter melon and, above all, the wine production, which has made the city one of the most appreciated wine making areas of Italy make Alcamo an important stopping place in the province and is also to be remembered for the age-old extraction and working of Travertine marble.
