Castelvetrano

Temple E

Castelvetrano has an interesting historic centre where it is pleasant to walk among the fine churches and noble town houses, (including palazzo Pignatelli) and the square system. Worth visiting is the Civic Museum which holds the precious bronze statue of Ephebos of Selinunte, an important Greek colony not far away, place of meetings and battles between the Greeks and Phoenicians. Here the vestiges of time (temples, acropolies and sanctuaries) mix with the surrounding landscape in the unique scenery of the biggest archaeological park of the Mediterranean. Castelvetrano is also a place not to be missed for its food and wine: here a characteristic “black bread” is produced and the Nocellara del Belice olives, a particularly juicy variety, which is low in acidity, flourish. Not to be forgotten are three pearls nearby: the sandy Nature Reserve of the Belice River Mouth and Neighbouring Dunes, the lovely Norman Trinità di Delia Church and the archaeological and naturalistic complex of the castello della pietra (castle of the stone).
