Petrosino

The history of Petrosino as an autonomous municipality of the province of Trapani began in 1980. Before this date, it was part of the Marsala territory. Petrosino and Marsala in fact share a common agricultural and wine making vocation. The countryside, in fact presents large cultivated fields, mostly with vines, with various local productions of fruit and vegetables. Passing through the fields, you will come across the typical baglio rural architectural structures, which are particularly widespread in the area between Marsala and Mazara del Vallo: these are real fortified farms, with internal courtyards which the old master’s house opens out onto. Petrosino is characterised not only by the agricultural landscape but also by its sandy coastlines (noteworthy is the Biscione beach) which in summer become popular holiday destinations.
