Natural heritage: Pure Sicily

The natural heritage of the province of Trapani is really outstanding: there are 11 nature reserves, which cover the most varied and unspoiled landscapes of an extraordinarily diversified area.
Islands scattered in the sea and clear blue lagoons, through sand dunes and forests, up to that challenge the underground caves, where the nature reveals the magic of Western Sicily.
Especially popular is the Zingaro Reserve, in the territory of San Vito Lo Capo.

It extends along one of the most beautiful stretches of Sicily coast, marked by a multitude of enchanting coves. High cliffs suddenly stand in the limestones, crossed by astonishing paths overlooking the sea. The flora and fauna reflect this alternation of tones. The Reserve is in fact home to 39 species of birds, mostly rapacious, a wide variety of rodents and other terrestrial animals, and a host of marine creatures that enjoy the uncontaminated waters. Moreover, thanks to the presence of local humid microclimates, hundreds of species of plants and flowers, some of them very rare, fill the 1600 hectares of the park.
On the road that leads from Trapani to Marsala, just opposite the Island of Favignana, there’s the Stagnone Reserve.

It is a lagoon, the largest in Sicily, dotted with tiny islands, which gather around the beautiful Mozia. The whole area is practicable only on foot or by flat-bottomed boats, to protect the ecosystem and the wonderful wildlife, preserving a completely "alien" habitat, the same that enchants the eyes of those who visit it.
