What to see near the port of Marsala
The city of Marsala, which over the centuries has undergone numerous dominations, is full of places and monuments not to be missed. Among the most significant religious buildings, the Cathedral of San Tommaso di Canterbury, the church of Purgatory , the Sanctuary of Maria Santissima della Cava di Marsala and the church of San Giovanni Battista (respectively patron and co-patron of the city) emerge without a doubt.
On the port (in the area called del salato) there is the monument to the Thousand, dedicated to the landing of Giuseppe Garibaldi and his men in Marsala on 11 May 1860. A mention, among the civil and military architecture, also deserves the Norman Castle of Marsala, Porta Garibaldi and Palazzo VII Aprile , seat of the Municipal Council.
To visit are then, on the promontory of Capo Boeo, the park of Lilibeo and the archaeological museum Baglio Anselmi, which houses the only example of a Punic ship in the world. Before returning home, a visit to the Stagnone lagoon (a nature reserve since 1984, including four islands) and the famous salt pans is also a must.
