Valderice

Villa Betania

Situated on a hill, between Trapani and Mount Erice, it is a panoramic holiday area much loved by the people of Trapani both for its tranquillity and for the healthy air that is breathed here. The town has always been a flourishing agricultural centre. Today, exploring the area, one can discover, among green extensions of olives and vines, mansion houses and ancient baglio (rural, fortified structures) with rich gardens. Immersed in the green of the municipal pine wood is the open air theatre, created in a disused quarry, which comes alive in the summer season with important cultural events. Other events which interest the territory are the Uphill time trial of Mount Erice (May), the Bibbia nel Parco – Bible in the Park (Christmas) and the parade of allegorical wagons (Carnival time). On reaching the coast, which winds its way around rocky bays and small beaches, one arrives at the ancient Tonnara (tuna warehouse) of Bonagia, whose tower holds a small museum of activity connected to fishing and the working of the tuna.
