In these parts, in the western tip of the three-pointed island, when the sun goes down, everything – absolutely everything – is a blaze of red.
Seeing the sun setting on the horizon over the sea, from the old town of Trapani, for instance near the Torre di Ligny or the Mura di Tramontana, is a spectacle of nature that leaves indelible memories.
Other unforgettable sunsets can be viewed from the open-air museum of the Saline, the Torre Nubia or the Stagnone, where you can enjoy an aperitif while the lagoon, salt pans and salt mountains, windmills and islets turn red.
Two other sunset masterpieces can be found at Punta Sottile, a scenic landscape feature on the Favignana coast, where the sun disappears behind its iconic lighthouse, and in the Gulf of Macari, where the mountains first glow red, then the rocky coastline, before the horizon becomes ablaze with fire.
That’s right, the west of Sicily is also all about the thrill of unique sunsets.
