What to see near the port of Favignana

Those arriving by ferry or hydrofoil in Favignana can immediately start their visit. The first thing to see is the Sea Museum located inside the former Florio factoryFor over a hundred years, from 1859 until the 1970s, tuna caught along the coast of the island was processed, canned and exported to the rest of the country in this factory a few hundred meters from the port.

Therefore tourism was not the first opportunity for redemption for Favignana. If anything, tourism, years after the end of industrial production, had the merit of recalling places, faces and anecdotes of that historical period in order to spread knowledge beyond the borders of the island.

Also very beautifulunderground gardens. Favignana, in fact, is rich in calcarenite, a stone widely used in construction. Once decommissioned, the quarries on the island were converted into orchards, citrus groves and home gardens, in many cases with astonishing results from an aesthetic point of view.

For the rest, a holiday in Favignana is dedicated to the sea and relaxation. From the beautiful Cala Rossa, passing through Cala AzzurraPraiaLido Burrone etc., there are many beaches and rocky coves where you can swim in complete tranquility. We are talking about naturalistic scenarios of the highest environmental value, not surprisingly all included in the Marine Protected Area Egadi Islands.
