Founded by the Elymians (ancient people of mixed Greek and Sican origin) as port ofErice (l’the old Iruka), thanks to theCarthaginians became a real autonomous city. Later the arabs and the spanishes made of Trapani one of the most important seaports of theMediterranean. A port city, lying between two seas, also known as the city of salt (for the Salt Pans founded by the Phoenicians) and the city of wind (for the weather and climate of the area), which is definitely worth a thorough visit.
