With its 82,390 inhabitants, it is the fifth largest city in Sicily by number, and it is also the major agricultural, industrial, and commercial center of the province of Trapani. Its current name derives from the Arabic, Marsa Allah, but its history is much older. The city of Marsala can be defined the “wine capital” of the province of Trapani. In its 250 square kilometers of extension, it has a rich cultural heritage and landscape. Its territory includes, for example, the Regional Natural Reserve of the Islands of the Stagnone Lagoon of Marsala. Within the Lagoon you can admire the beautiful Mothya, one of the most important and flourishing Phoenician colonies in the Mediterranean, which deserves to be included among the UNESCO World Heritage Sites for its extraordinary history and beauty.
