BACKGROUND

Here’s some of what the Lonely Planet – Italy chapter on Sicily has to say about Saline Di Trapani:

“Drive along the coast road between Marsala and Trapani and you will find yourself in a bleached landscape of shallow saline (salty pools) and softly shimmering heaps of salt.

The salt from these pans is considered the best in Italy and has been big business since the 12th century. Now, however, only a cottage industry remains, providing for Italy’s more discerning dinner tables.

The most attractive spot along the coast is the Riserva Naturale di Stagnone, a shallow lagoon and noted wetlands area.”
