Salemi

On the site where once, the ancient Sicanian city of Halyciae rose, set on top of the Monte delle Rose (Mountain of the Roses), is Salemi, one of the most secluded and interesting towns from an artistic and monumental point of view of the province of Trapani. In the historic centre, ancient town houses made in the local campanella stone, and churches, the oldest of which is the Paleochristian basilica of San Miceli, the medieval castle and the Jewish quarter of Rabato can be found. Usually a quiet town, Salemi fills with people on the day of the festivity for San Giuseppe (Saint Joseph) (19th March) when the town organises symbolic dinners and transforms itself into a rich continuation of altars decorated in arabesque bread rolls and rich in allegorical elements. The many small museums are not to be missed.
