Along the route that starting from Trapani going through Paceco leads to Marsala along the lagoon of Stagnone, mountains characterized by the blindig whiteness glinting in the sun are visible. What you see is not snow but the salt rocks, one of the most valuable historical resources of Sicily during the period of the Phoenicians to whom we owe the first producitve technologies. The favorable climatic conditions such as swallow water, high temperature and the wind favoring evaporation, help in order to create the striking and unreal scenery of the salt flats, forming an immense chekerboard characterized by the greenish color that tends to pink. The tourist itineraries that lead to the salt flats wind along the banks of the basins and along the banks of the shimmering pools for the crystallization of salt, reach the island in which tower restored windmills, a reminder of time when they were the main instruments to pump water and grind the salt. A landscape to be enjoyed, preferably at sunset, when everything goes red.
